Myself and Rahmanuddin will be taking sessions at Barcamp Bangalore on Oct
In the first session we will explore various technical aspects of Wikipedia
with demonstrations. Wikipedia has its own set of APIs using which we can
retrieve information by using various queris and parameters. The output can
be generated in various formats. These output can be used for processing by
programming languages as input. These will be demonstrated.
In the sub-section we will cover in detail how wikimetrics work in terms of
tracking a Wikipedia user’s contributions. On the flip side, we will be
learning how to use Pywikipedia bot framework to improve and enhance
Wikipedia articles. Prior python knowledge is required. Working with
databases, spreadsheets would be a plus.
Thanks and regards,
