Wikimedia Hackathon 2015

    • A early preview of the primary SPARQL endpoint for Wikidata has been created to query Wikidata. Remember that it is not stable and still beta. A short introduction to SPARQL can be found in Lucie's slides.
    • If you are not familiar with SPARQL yet, a tool has been created by Tpt and Bene* to generate SPARQL queries from natural language questions.
    • To do SPARQL queries from the command line, a command line tool was crafted by Marius.
    • The special page to query for badges is within reach.
    • A feedback session on the architecture of Wikibase was held.
    • We got a cool presentation by Maxime about inventaire.io.
