This event has passed.

In this workshop, you will be introduced to Wikibase and associated applications for data creation, editing, and discovery. Learn the steps required to deploy and configure a stand-alone instance of Wikibase, and load data into it for a set of bibliographic entities. You’ll then be able to use that Wikibase instance to test entity creation and editing, experiment with batch processing using the Pywikibot Python library, and try out a SPARQL endpoint for a triplestore based on the Wikibase data.
