With two days of talks, workshops, demos, meetups, and social events, the diverse and awesome people that belong to the Wikidata community were able to share their experiences, their favorite tools, learn from the others, discover new ways to create, enrich, reuse data from the free knowledge base. The program has been built through a call for projects, and more than 70 sessions have be held by community members. A welcoming party on the Friday evening and a birthday celebration also took place to bring the community together.
