African Wikimedia Technical Community Hackathon

The African WikiMedia Technical Community Hackathon is a hybrid two day event that hosted developers, translators, testers and other technical documentation writers to come together and work together on technical projects, learn from each other, and make new friends as well as find ways to solve existing problems.

The African WikiMedia Technical Community Hackathon formerly known as Africa Wikimedia Developers Project (AWMD) initially started as a project that sought to start a developer community on the African continent and to encourage more developers to volunteer for the Wikimedia Foundation 

The Hackathon is for anyone who contributes (or wants to contribute) to Wikimedia’s technical areas - as code creators, maintainers, translators, technical writers and other technical roles.

The hackathon saw technical contributors with new projects, joining existing projects, creating new projects with other technical projectors.
