Talk DescriptionEvent
The Why and How of Wiki FarmsI will discuss what has motivated us to craft a repeatable process for creating a wiki farm and will present a "how to" for creating your own wiki farm.SMWCon Spring 2015
Semantic MediaWiki Farm Infrastructure for Multi-Organizational SharingWe recently deployed a wiki farm on the MITRE Partnership Network to support collaboration among MITRE and its partners. This talk will discuss the technical aspects of the infrastructure and the deployment process.SMWCon Spring 2014
Revolutionizing page naming with semantic propertiesQuite often, we find it helpful to have the actual name of a page from the perspective of MediaWiki to be an automatically-generated static page id, while allowing a semantic property to indicate a name that would be meaningful to a user. This creates complications, including how to select a page in a field of a semantic form. To support this alternative approach to page naming, we have used a modified version of the SemanticTitle extension as well as several extensions to SemanticForms that we have custom developed and are in the process of submitting to the open source community.SMWCon Fall 2013
Building enterprise knowledge using semantic encyclopediasOur team has created more than 50 semantic encyclopedias since 2006 to build enterprise knowledge at MITRE and customer sites. We will share our social and organizational lessons learned.SMWCon Fall 2013
