MediaWiki developers and Wikimedia engineers have flown from all over the world to meet up in Berlin.
For the third time, Wikimedia Deutschland is organizing a “hackathon”, a coding event where developers work together to improve the MediaWiki software and the technological platform for Wikipedia.
Work at the hackathon is notably focused on improvements in MediaWiki’s text editor, development tools, improvements in the parser, mobile apps, and bug fixing. We’re also having a few lightning talks.
These developer days are included in the program of the Berlin Web Week, a series of events happening in Berlin in May and bringing together Internet and software communities and industry players.
This year’s motto is “talk less, code more”. Happy coding!
