Hi all!

Wikimedia Germany invites anyone interested in improving MediaWiki to come and
join us at or third developer meet-up. Like the last two years, it's going to be
awesome! Unlike the last two years, there will be more hacking and less talking
- it'll be a Hackathon, not a BarCamp.

We'll meet on May 13 to 15, in Berlin, on the 4th floor of the betahaus
coworking space<>.

There will not be an entrance fee, but registration is mandatory and now open:


Registration will close on April 10. If you like to attend, please register in

More information can be found at


The Berlin Hackathon 2011 is an opportunity for MediaWiki hackers to come
together, squash bugs and write crazy new features. Our main focus this time
around will probably be:

* Improving usability / accessibility
* Interactive Maps
* Fixing the parser
* WMF Ops (new data center, virtualization)
* Supporting the Wiki Loves Monuments image hunt
* Squashing bugs

If you have different ideas, please let us know:

The Hackathon will be hosting the Language committee and Wiki loves Monuments
group. There is a limited number of seats reserved for these groups and if you
belong to one of them, you should receive an invitation code soon.

If you have any doubts or questions, contact us at<>.

We’re excited to see you in Berlin, your Hackathon Team
