This tutorial provides an introduction into the usage of Semantic MediaWiki wikis. It will demonstrate some of the capabilities of SMW and cover a few "hands-on" parts like setting up a basic data structure as well as using it. It will be an interactive session, with demos and audience feedback throughout.

This tutorial will lay ground for the consecutive tutorials The Other Extensions as well as Semantic MediaWiki real-world use cases and their underlying concepts.
