FOSSers is conducting a Wikipedia + Wikidata workshop on March 4th, 2019. Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines.Wikidata is used for data science. It is a large public database of relations in Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wikisource and others.
Along with the workshop, we’re planning to inaugurate LinuxChix VAST, a local community of the international LinuxChix community. LinuxChix is a community for women who like Linux and for anyone who wants to support women in computing : india.linuxchix.org. Our college would be the first to have a LinuxChix community. In India, LinuxChix is active only in New Delhi. We have also started a Kerala community to set up LinuxChix in more colleges in Kerala.
This free workshop is sponsored by ICFOSS & Wikimedia Foundation.
