Hello all,
As a reminder, scholarship applications for the Wikimedia Hackathon are open until the end of the week.
If you're considering attending, feel free to apply! We will have a few scholarships for people working on Wikidata-related tools or Wikibase.

This is a final reminder that registration for the Wikimedia Hackathon is
closing for volunteers requesting a scholarship or visa and WMF staff in
three days on 9 February.  Registration link and more details about the
event can be found here on Mediawiki.org

Special thanks to Wiki Tech Storm organizers for helping us to re-think our
newcomer program to be even more friendly and easy to navigate and to the
GLAM community for coming up with so many good ideas so far. :)
Once staff and scholarships are confirmed (around 21 Feb) you can begin to
follow our progress on the newly opened Hackathon Workboard on Phabricator
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/board/4551/> as people add their
projects and session ideas.

We are here to help, so please send an email if you have any questions or
ideas. :)
