Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The Query Booth is a participative area where people can get help with writing queries for Wikidata. The Query Service is a very powerful tool allowing to ask questions to Wikidata, to generate lists or datavisualizations, but it can be a bit intimidating at first. The hosts of the Query Booth will be here to help! Newcomers and more experienced people can come to the table at anytime during the unconference day and get help to create or improve a query. The hosts (ideally 3-4 people) have already experience with the Query Service - they are not necessarily SPARQL experts but they know how to dive in the documentation and find some answers. Come and write your first query with us!

I volunteer to be host at the Query Booth:
