Hello all,

The Wikimania Hackathon is August 12-14, just over 2 weeks away! Details are listed below.


Registration for the Wikimania Hackathon has now opened [1]! To register, submit your information to the Wikimania organizers, which will give you access to the Wikimania platform [2]. You can also optionally add your name to the participants page on the Wikimania wiki [3].


The Hackathon will take place virtually on Pheedloop, the Wikimania platform [4]. This platform complies with WCAG 2.1 AA, and will support screen readers, font adjustments, and many other accessibility features. Video sessions will be held in Jitsi through this platform. 

Format of the event

The Hackathon consists of events spread over three days [5]

Preparing for the Hackathon

There are many ways to take part in the event. Think about what project you might want to work on (see examples from past Hackathons [6]), add your idea to Phabricator [7], and consider presenting at the pre-Hacking showcase. Host a session by adding information to the schedule [5]. Check out information for newcomers [8]. And don’t forget to register [2]!

Best wishes,

Haley and the Developer Advocacy Team
