Wikimania Hackathon will take place August 6-7, 2014, as a pre-conference event before Wikimania.
To help plan for this year's Hackathon - the organizers are asking for input and brainstorming from interested participants. All ideas are welcome!
If you would like to submit an idea for non-Hackathon related Wikimania programming - please visit the main Brainstorming page.
Newbies+experts pair programming
I think it would be interesting to experiment with a session for pair/group programming where newbies would be joined by seasoned developers to help them accomplish some small task, e.g. solving one of the easy bugs. Sort of a micro-GSOC :) --Waldir (talk) 02:17, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Wiki research data hackathon
I'm working to plan a global virtual hackathon with a focus on wiki research, data and processing libraries. I'd like to host the London local meetup at the Wikimania Hackathon. I'll also have presenters organized for giving tutorials for accessing data and processing it. --EpochFail (talk) 20:02, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
