About[edit]

Indic Wikimania Hackathon 2022 is a regional event of the main Wikimania 2022. The Hackathon is for anyone who contributes (or wants to contribute) to Wikimedia’s technical areas - as code creators, maintainers, translators, designers, technical writers and other technical roles. You can come with a project in mind, join an existing project, or create something new with others. The goal of a regional in-person event is to bring together technical contributors from India for a regional hackathon as a local meetup of the upcoming Wikimania Hackathon 2022, to resolve pending technical issues, bugs, brainstorm on tooling ideas, and foster connections between contributors.
