About the event

Following up on the successful workshop in 2016 this event was designed to provide a further training opportunity for new Wikipedians and a refresher on the basic essentials for anyone already editing Wikipedia and/or exploring other Wikimedia projects.

How do I prepare?

Simply CREATE A WIKIPEDIA USER ACCOUNT (if you don't already have one) + meta link here

If you like, you can also learn a little about editing ahead of time here or here.

If you really want to get ahead of the curve, see Getting started on Wikipedia for more information

  • Goal for the day: explore the power of Wikipedia as a knowledge-sharing tool and learn editing basics.
