Mark your calendars for the Wikimania Hackathon! The Wikimania 2022
Hackathon is a free, online event open to the general public to work
together on technical projects, learn new skills, and meet other technical
contributors. You can find more information about this on the Wikimania page
<https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2022:Hackathon>, which will continue
to grow over the next few weeks. For more details, read below.
The Hackathon will take place virtually in three time blocks:
16- 22 UTC August 12
12-17 UTC August 13
A final showcase on August 14.
At the beginning of the event, anyone can present a technical project they
plan to work on at the Pre-Event Showcase. This session will provide a
space for people to find teams, brainstorm new ideas, and make plans for
what to hack during the Hackathon.
Throughout the following hours, there will be social sessions and training
sessions run by the community, but the majority of the time will be spent
hacking together. Attendees can also attend other Wikimania activities.
At the end of the event, there will be a final showcase to present advances
or new technical projects built during the Hackathon to all of Wikimania.
