Project Management | Monday, February 11 | 6:30-8:30PM | Kimon Keramidas & Michael Mandiberg

This professional development workshop will focus on how to manage the various aspects of a project, including setting realistic benchmarks and meeting them, sticking to budgets, scope creep, and failing forward. Through interactive exercises, participants will gain an understanding of things to consider while completing a project.


Wikidata | Monday, February 25 | 6:30-8:30PM | Megan Wacha

The newest project of the Wikimedia movement, Wikidata is a collaboratively edited, free repository of linked open data that connects knowledge across all 300+ language editions of Wikipedia and its sister projects. This hands-on workshop will cover the basics of Wikidata, including how to edit existing items, model data to create new ones, and query the (still incomplete) sum of all human knowledge. No experience of anything is required.
