Because many communities lack of people with Lua skills, we want to organize a workshop that will be also filmed for future use.
- Title: Introduction to Lua for beginners (suggestion)
- Duration: 2 hours
- Day and time: Wednesday, August 14th, at 16:00
- Room: Bergsmannen / Curie
- Facilitation: @RexxS + 2 assistants (@Mike_Peel and @VIGNERON )
- Video recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxN3bqwT-rs and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimania_Hackathon_2019-_Lua_Workshop.webm
Lua is a very useful programming language that allows to create powerful templates on the Wikimedia projects, for example to get data from Wikidata. This workshop will start from scratch and give you the basics of Lua, so you can create your own scripts or reuse existing ones.
Requirements for the room: 15-20 seats, classroom setup, plenty of power plugs. Big screen/projector in front.
