Wikidata and Pywikibot Training
Wikimedia Indonesia funded a speaker from U.K, Andy Mabbett and John Vandenberg from Australia to do a focus group discussion and training about Wikidata and Pywikibot. This effort is supported by three projects actively pursued by Wikimedia Indonesia Pemetaaan dan Transparansi di Kalimantan, Keterlibatan Masyarakat Teknologi dalam Media, and Mapping Indonesian Language and Literature Vitality.
There are three main goals for this trainer and speaker to come to Jakarta:
- Enable HOTOSM staff and other interested participants to use the best practise for data entry and use of mapping data in Wikidata. Explore ways for HOTOSM and Wikidata to cross-link, share and compare their datasets to increase the quality of both datasets.
- Introduce Wikimedia bot operators and wiki maintainers to the new PAWS bot services, to simplify performing adhoc wiki maintenance tasks. Also update Wikimedia bot operators on new features of Pywikibot 2.0 that may be used to simplify creating scripts to perform wiki maintenance tasks.
- Familiarise linguistics and languages experts on the data entry and use of language data and cultural works in Wikidata. Analyse how language data and cultural works from around the world are described in Wikidata and other relevant systems. Document where the Wikidata data model needs to be improved to adequately describe Indonesian languages and cultural works.
