The hackathon of Wikimania 2021 will take place remotely on August 13th, starting at 5:00 am UTC. We aim to provide a space to gather the technical community and onboard people who would like to get involved in the development of MediaWiki and many other areas in the Wikimedia's technical ecosystem​. We also see this day as a space for experiments​. With an open schedule and a light, self-organized mindset, the hackathon day is the perfect opportunity for you to try new projects, formats or to gather people and start working on a new idea.
