Wikimedia Hackathon 2022

Hybrid Hybrid Event

20 May 2022 @ 00:00 22 May 2022 @ 23:59 UTC

The Wikimedia Hackathon 2022 will take place as a hybrid event on May 20-22, 2022. The Hackathon will be held online and there will be grants available to support local in-person meetups around the world.

Who: The Hackathon is for anyone who contributes (or wants to contribute) to Wikimedia’s technical areas – as code creators, maintainers, translators, designers, technical writers and other technical roles. You can come with a project in mind, join an existing project, or create something new with others. The choice is yours! Newcomers are welcome. If you have any accessibility or translation requests, please contact hlepp@wikimedia.org.

We will send out more information on how to schedule a session in the program soon! You can also add yourself to the participants list, and mention if you would like to help with tasks such as facilitation or welcoming newcomers.

What: A Wikimedia Hackathon is a space for the technical community to come together and work together on technical projects, learn from each other, and make new friends.

When: May 20-May 22. The schedule will be announced shortly. We are trying to plan events so that people in all time zones can participate comfortably. There will be core hours several times a day when most events will occur, and online social and hacking spaces open 24 hours a day throughout the three days.

Where: The Hackathon will primarily be held online. Local affiliates can also apply for grants to host in-person local meetups. Meetups can be anything from social gatherings with food, to a party for watching the opening or closing ceremony, to renting a venue where people can participate together in the online event. The Code of Conduct for Wikimedia’s Technical Spaces will be in effect throughout the event, on all platforms, discussion channels, and at local meetups. Please have a look at it and ensure you are willing and able to follow it.
