For participants interested in hacking on MediaWiki at Wikimania, we want to help you in setting up the development environment. We will walk you through step-by-step instructions, and carry out installation from a MediaWiki vagrant image that we will pre-load in a bunch of USB drives and bring it for you. We'll help you get setup in less than an hour!
What are the prerequisites of this session?
- Bring your laptop
- If you are a newcomer to Wikimedia projects, and not sure which technical areas you want to contribute to, we recommend you to attend 'Introduction to Wikimedia tech' session first. That way you will learn whether you need to setup MediaWiki or something else to start hacking.
