When are you available to have the session?
Any time between ca. 9:00 UTC and 21:00 UTC on both days, I think.
Short description of the session (~150 words):
In this session, we will spend an hour writing SPARQL queries against the Wikidata Query Service, to see what kind of useful or interesting data we can get out of Wikidata. Participants can bring their own suggestions for things to query, and we’ll see if we can figure those queries out.
Describe what your session is about
Wikidata users, or people who are interested in getting information from Wikidata.
What will participants get out of this session? (~50 words)
A better understanding of the capabilities of the query service, some new SPARQL tricks, and some specific useful queries (e.g. maintenance queries).
