About the workshop[edit]

During the 3rd day of the conference, there will be a hackathon with different workshops. They would like to have a Wikidata/SPARQL/reusing data one. The exact program needs to be decided with the trainers, but the raw schedule is:

  • Wikidata introduction (1h)
  • Query Service/SPARQL introduction (1h)
  • Optional: other tools to query data (API, etc) (30min)
  • Rest of the day: hackathon, people working on projects, the trainers help and support them

The expected audience is a group of 45 persons who already work in big data/large databases, academic, researchers, as much as people working in companies.
