WikidataCon is the conference dedicated to the Wikidata community, organized for and with the community.

If you edit Wikidata, make queries with SPARQL, build scripts, gadgets or external tools, reuse data from Wikidata with your software or your service, if you belong to an organization who wants to use or donate data, if you're working on open data, datajournalism, datavizualisation, open knowledge, civictech... you're welcome to the WikidataCon!

The WikidataCon will take place on October 28th-29th (+ social event on Friday 27th), in the Tagesspiegel venue, in Berlin. Due to our international community, the event will take place in English only. However, language/local meetups can be added to the program. The event is full with 200 persons from all around the world, to celebrate Wikidata's 5th birthday and share knowledge and experience whithin the community.

With two days of talks, workshops, demos, meetups, and social events, the diverse and awesome people that belong to the Wikidata community will be able to share their experiences, their favorite tools, learn from the others, discover new ways to create, enrich, reuse data from the free knowledge base. The program has been built through a call for projects, and more than 70 sessions will be held by community members. A welcoming party on the Friday evening and a birthday celebration will also take place to bring the community together.
