Wikidata documentation sprint
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The documentation sprint is a session that will take place during the 3 days of the hackathon. Its main goal is to improve user-documentation about Wikidata and Wikibase.
Anyone is welcome to join at any moment during the event, join a team or not, work on one of the suggested topics or not.

We will build a list of tasks with the community, so participants can work alone or in teams. During the sprint, we will also organize short workshops about useful tools (e.g. translation tools, illustration). Organizers will provide advices to help participants to build a good documentation. Non-tech people welcome. People will be able to attend remotely.

I have experience creating short demo videos about Wikidata. Will bring my recording equipment to the hackathon (= my laptop and headphones with integrated microphone).

What demonstration videos would be useful?

@Spinster That would be wonderful! We can think about several small tasks that users often do, such as creating a new item, merging two items, adding interwiki links, etc.

Lydia_Pintscher moved this task from incoming to monitoring on the Wikidata board.Mar 23 2017, 2:46 PM
