Abstract & description[edit source]
Wikimedia Indonesia, the Igbo Wikimedians User Group and Wikimedia Deutschland have joined forces to advance the technical capacities of the movement around Wikidata development.
Join us to find out how 3 partners excited about Wikidata software development come together and enter their second year of collaborating.
Wikimedia Indonesia, the Igbo Wikimedians User Group and Wikimedia Deutschland have joined forces to advance the technical capacities of the movement around Wikidata development and with this, make the software and tools more usable by cultures under-represented in technology, people of the Global South and speakers of minority languages.
Those partnerships are entering their second year and we want to update the movement on the progress of this collaboration and what we as movement can learn from sharing knowledge and resources among affiliates.
Goal: We want to spread the word in the movement and showcase an example of how we can move forward when it comes to the implementation of our movement strategy and recommendations around hubs, increasing the sustainability of our movement and skills and leadership development.
