Expected results[edit]

A learning gathering which brought together people from diverse backgrounds to discuss about contemporary issues around wiki data and Wikipedia. This was the first and a learning workshop for all of those who attended it. We however had an interesting presentation on Wikipedia, how it works and how to be a part of it. We spent a lot of time focusing on Wikipedia than project wiki data as attendees showed more interest on Wikipedia itself.


We had about 26 attendees.
