Training Course - Workshop
Code The City will host Dr. Sara Thomas, Scotland Programme Coordinator for Wikimedia UK.
Sara will lead an introductory session on Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia. No experience is necessary.
You'll learn about - and get to try - a range of tools that have been built by Wikimedia volunteers to enable both the easy visualisation of information and data, and to streamline the crowd-sourcing of things like pictures of listed buildings.
This session is aimed at those with an interest in local history and culture, those who have a museums, galleries, libraries or archives background, or who just want to learn more about the Wikimedia projects and how they can get involved in improving existing data for Aberdeen and the North East. This will be an easy, informal introductory session.
You can bring a laptop or tablet to try the tools out - it's not absolutely essential but it will make it much more interesting!
