Audience: This tutorial is targeted for MediaWiki developers and advanced users who want to get a hands-on experience of how to use Wikidata to enrich data in their own wiki.

Requirements: You will need a working Semantic MediaWiki installation on your laptop as well as basic PHP and MediaWiki extension development knowledge.


This is the continuation of the session Using the Wikidata API.

Daniel Kinzler and Tobias Gritschacher are two of the main Wikidata developers. They will work with you on enriching your own wiki with multilingual data from Wikidata. Learn how to make use of a large amount of general data in your wiki and make use of the work done by a large volunteer community maintaining that data.

During the tutorial you will create a page in your own Semantic MediaWiki installation for example for a conference and then retrieve additional data from Wikidata to enrich this page.
