Hell, Yes! (Ugo Rondinone, on the facade of the New Museum)

The Wikibase Summit New York was the third workshop on using Wikibase outside – but with close integration with – the Wikimedia ecosystem. The previous editions were in Antwerp (April 2018) and Berlin. In Antwerp and Berlin the focus was respectively on infrastructure and modelling. The workshop in New York continued efforts on both topics, and also focused on UX and interfacing to a federated landscape of Wikibases.
