Intro[edit]

One of our friends, Jeroen_De_Dauw, is a member of the wikidata team. As it is a cool project, let's see where we can volunteer to help out.

Call For Participation[edit]

If you want to help out, add yourself to the Participants list. We'll meet on the regular Thursday evening meetings to discuss things. You can also volunteer directly at Wikidata: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikidata/Volunteers

Wikidata: where to start[edit]

Well, for starters have a look at their wiki-page: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikidata. You can also check the IRC at irc://irc.freenode.net/wikimedia-wikidata

Wikidata at 0x20[edit]

Importing data to Wikidata[edit]

Cedric has already volunteered for 'Importing data to Wikidata'. Probably we'll be using the MySql and Pentaho tools on Kimball for this. More to come...
