Open Web Wikipedia Editathon and Hackathon

Join us at the Bocoup Loft for a fun day of improving Wikipedia's coverage of the open web and hacking on Wikipedia's API, javascript and Mediawiki extensions.

Our editing focus will be on topics relevant to the open web, open source software, open data and many others. But we welcome anyone who wants to come and improve Wikipedia articles. If you're new to Wikipedia or to programming, drop by and we'll be happy to help you contribute.

Developers in any language are welcome to come. Mediawiki extensions are written in PHP, the new template system is designed to interpret Lua, the user styles and actions are Javascript and CSS and the API has bindings in Python and a number of other languages. So everyone is welcome!
