The next Wikimedia annual development community meet-up — the Wikimedia Hackathon — will be held in Zürich, Switzerland in 2014 from May 9-11.

It is planned to be a long weekend filled with hacking anything related to MediaWiki or one of the Wikimedia projects (and sometimes other things, too). The Hackathon is completely open; we welcome both seasoned and new developers, as well as people working on MediaWiki, tools, pywikibot, gadgets, extensions, templates, etc.

Previous hackathon events were held all over the world, such as in Amsterdam, Netherlands (2013), Pune, India (2012), San Francisco, USA (2012), Mumbai, India (2011), Brighton, UK (2011), New Orleans, USA (2011), Berlin, Germany (2011) and Washington DC, USA (2010).

As you can see in the email that Rupert forward, the Hackathon is not all about coding Mediawiki, other project that can impact Mediawiki or Wikipedia and its sister project are welcomed!  

Swiss, and european in general, OSM developers are warmly invited to apply for a scholarship to attend the Wikimedia Hackathon, just keep in mind that this year the motivation is to go back to the basis and have three days of hacking.

If you are not a developer but would like to meet some, a meeting "Tech People meeting Regular Users" will be organized, stay tuned!



Venue and Accommodation
The venue and accommodation will be both at the same site: Youth Hostel Zürich, Switzerland. All conference rooms are available to us including a nice yard. We have a big main conference hall and three workshop rooms.
