Every day, Wikipedia's tens of millions of articles are read by hundreds of millions of people. Even after 16 years, every couple of months, hundreds of communities grow the site by around 1%. And we are still just getting started.
Wikipedia has always relied on donations. It needs its community of creators who recognize that money can only go so far. This gives developers and designers an opportunity to make some of the greatest donations of all.
The Wikipedia Data Design Challenge aims to connect designers and developers with the greatest body of knowledge the world has ever seen, as well as the community dedicated to facts, verifiability, and all those suddenly-topical areas.
We'll open with a very special keynote by Maciej Ceglowski, founder of Pinboard, followed by words from Wikimedia's Head of Research, Dario Taraborelli, and then head into tutorials on Wikipedia's rich ecosystem of data and tools. Working through the afternoon and evening, we invite you back for the second day to showcase your projects. And of course, we'll have lunch and refreshments for both days.
The facts of the future will need tools for the future. Come help build them today.
