9:00am to 5:30pm
Museum technologists and Wikimedians speak the same language, but don’t often have the opportunity to speak to each other. MediaWiki, which runs the Wikimedia family of knowledge projects, has a huge number of technologies relevant to museums: APIs, mobile frameworks, extensible presentation layers, and an audience larger than any other reference on the planet. This session aims to bridge the gap between Wikimedia developers and museum technologists, to offer a chance to work side by side, to learn the software, tools, and to begin interfacing Museum content with Wikimedia.
Experts will help with instruction, examples and brainstorming at concept and implementation levels for Museum technologists interested in or already working with MediaWiki software and/or the Wikimedia Foundation’s family of knowledge projects.
