This technical workshop is aimed at those who want to get started with Semantic MediaWiki development, and at those who want to improve their skills. For those that want to participate fully, understanding of basic software development principles and the ability to write simple PHP code is required. You will also already need to have a working MediaWiki development environment set up. You can attend the Creating MediaWiki extensions workshop earlier during the day if you need help with this. Attention will be paid to workflow, including how to write tests and how to submit code via gerrit.
There will be ample time for questions.
- Workshop contents
We will be creating a simple result format that displays analytics baded on event data from the SMW wiki. The result format will reside in its own extension. Attendees will be able to clone a git repo that already contains the foundations of this extension, so they can get right to the interesting parts. A full solution will also be provided, for those who get stuck, or wish to just look at the code rather then writing it themselves.
