On the 21C3 we have the occasion to hold a MediaWiki developer conference. Currently we have got funding to bring Brion VIBBER and Tim Starling to Berlin for this event, Jimbo Wales will hold a presentation, too.

The 21C3 is from 27th to 29th December in Berlin at the BCC. There will be about 3500 hackers, geeks and other crazy people from all over the world, lots of interesting presentations and workshops and a genial ambiance. Wikipedia will have an own corner for presentating the project and meetings of Wikipedians.
