Wikidata was seven years old on 29 October, and so WikidataCon 2019 was held in Berlin. You can read all about it, see high-quality videos of many of the sessions, and enjoy the many "birthday presents", all via the program.
Panandâ, a mobile app powered by Wikidata (and Wikimedia Commons), was selected as one of the five finalists in the App for Social Good category in the Android Masters 2019 competition organized by Google Developer Group Philippines. The final event will be held on November 16.
