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’ll build a small (but hopefully useful) tool from scratch. The tool will be hosted on Wikimedia Toolforge, and we’ll use the Python programming language and the Flask framework for building the tool. The tool will interact with the MediaWiki API and present results to the user; however, it will not make any edits or perform other activities on wikis.
Tool developers and people interested in becoming tool developers.
What will participants get out of this session? (~50 words)
Participants will see what goes into the making of a small tool, and which steps are used to create and deploy it.
