Based on my personal experience working on a wiki using both WikiBase and SMW, this presentation will show to the public the basic concept of the integration I made. I will explain how the two products can work together and overcome shortcomings of both by finding synergies. I will also show how to store SMW-related data in WikiBase for more consistent configuration and use. I will also provide LUA samples to show potential usecases
