The GLAM team will attend Wikimania in Cape Town, with quite a few presentations and sessions that are related to the upcoming Structured Data on Commons. Join us!
During Learning Days, there is a 90-minute session on structured data and Wikidata partnerships, highlighting the main elements in a workflow for such a partnership, common tips, and an overview of software tools that can help during such a project.
Structured Data on Commons is a focus area of the Wikimania hackathon, where we will do some work on modelling files and will be brainstorming about the most important properties and metadata that should be part of structured Commons files.
