16–19 August 2023, Singapore and Online


Wikimania Hackathon 2023 will take place between Tuesday and Saturday, 15–19 August 2023, throughout the Wikimania 2023 conference.

The Wikimania hackathon is a working event with limited capacity where technical Wikimedians from around the world meet to co-work on engineering problems. Unlike other Wikimania events, this event is specifically meant for individuals with technical backgrounds or who are involved in specific wiki-related technical projects. We also encourage attendance from members of underserved communities who are looking for technical help for their wikis / projects. If you have any questions please email the hackathon organizers!

Program[edit | edit source]

There will a hacking space, lecture room, and workshop room. The hacking space will be configured with tables for groups of developers to work together. Sessions will be held at the lecture room and workshop room.

Availability of spaces:

  • Hacking space: 15–19 August 2023. X tables (Number to be confirmed)
  • Lecture room: 15–16 August 2023. Hourly slots
  • Workshop room: 16 August 2023. Hourly slots
