Hello everyone,

Thank you all for signing up for the bot workshops! :)

The first workshop on the topic of “Pywikibot framework introduction & installation” is coming up - it will take place on Friday, February 25th at 16:00 UTC.

You can find more details on the workshop and a link to join here <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops#Intro_to_Pywikibot_framework_and_installation> [1].

We will record this workshop and update the workshops page with the link later. Also, a quick note on the certificate distribution we shared briefly in the previous email - out of the eight planned workshops, individuals who will complete five and a final assignment will receive a digital certificate.

We look forward to your participation!

Hi all,

TLDR; Want to learn new technical skills to help improve your wiki? Sign up for workshops on scripts and bot development, organized by the small wiki toolkits initiative: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops> [1].

Small wiki toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to build technical capacity in smaller language wikis by developing toolkits, conducting workshops, and providing technical support <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits> [2]. The first set of workshops for 2022 will teach individuals how to automate work in their wiki community by developing, maintaining, and hosting bots. These trainings build upon the lessons learned from two regional initiatives in 2021: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Past_events> [3].

To sign up for a workshop, add your signature under a specific workshop section on this page <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops> [4]. The first workshop is scheduled for February 25th, 16:00 UTC. The organizing team will share more details on mailing lists and on your talk page closer to the date of the workshop.

The SWT Organizing Team is also exploring issuing digital certificates and badges to attendees of these workshops. More information on that will be available in the coming weeks.
