Greece report: User Group holds editathon on technology

By Marios Magioladitis

Wikimedia Community User Group Greece took the initiave to hold an ediathon on Computers and Technology that takes place from April 23 to May 6, 2018.

The editathon aims to enrich the Greek Wikipedia with articles on that area that are important for the understanding of current and future evolution in the relevant space. The action is supported by Voxxed Days, an international series of events for IT developers.

In the competition, two winners, one man and one woman, will be awarded, based on the overall size and quality of the contribution to the relevant entries. Winners will be given one ticket for Voxxed Days Athens. The user group decided to distribute the awards equally between men and women in order to close the gender gap in technology.

The contestants have to create new articles from a pre-formulated list of articles related to IT. The list consists mainly of most wanted articles and non-existent articles with many incoming links.
