Hi everyone,

Last year the gender gap working group of Wikimedia Netherlands organized
the Women Tech Storm (May 2018) and the first Wiki Techstorm (October
2018). The Techstorm is a very diverse conference, open and inviting to
everyone. Our main aim is increasing diversity within the broader Wikimedia
movement, as well as decreasing the gender gap by emphasising on the
participation of women and non-binairy people to the event.
The Techstorm offers workshops and guidance for people with beginning or
intermediate experience in coding and/or Wikimedia skills, and has a high
mentor-student ratio.

This Friday and Saturday the 22nd and 23rd of November, we come together in
Amsterdam for the Wiki Techstorm 2019. For this years event, we approached
our cultural partners, and have added an extra layer. By working together
with our friends from GLAM institutions all over the Netherlands, we have
collected media and data that will be shared through Wikimedia Commons and
Wikidata this upcoming weekend. This means our participants get hands on
experience on how to process specific tasks, and the institutions get a
better idea of what can be done with their input (collections), what they
can ask of us, and how to get the best results. There will be 11 workshops,
on various fields of developments within Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata.
We also invited a few of our expert developers from the Netherlands, to
help us develop and renew apps and tools.

Curious about the event? Or would you like to know the basics of Wikidata
or Commons, al the newest on structured data, how to create a map using
Wikidata, or how to scrape a website?
Please join us through our live streams on the Wikimedia Nederland YouTube
