«Wikipedia turns 10 years and we will celebrate!»

"Unknown" is not in the list of possible values (Meeting, Workshop, Talk, Slacking, Conference, Hacking) for this property.


On January 15, 2011, Wikipedia the free encyclopedia is 10 years old. (More info) That's a reason to celebrate!

There will be 2 short presentations, drinks and swag. Everyone who attends can have a free Wikipedia tshirt, sticker and button specially made for the event! Internet access is also available for those who bring their laptop/phone/etc. We also have cheap drinks like beer, club-mate, hermann brause, ice-tea etc.


16:30 - Space opens

17:30 - 18:30 - Talks: These will be held in Dutch (Nederlandstalig)

  • 17:30 - 18:00 - Maarten: How Wikipedia spreads to other media: over hoe fouten in Wikipedia zich verspreiden naar andere media
  • 18:00 - 18:30 - Jeroen De Dauw: A closer look at MediaWiki, the software Wikipedia runs on

18:30 - Social and champagne time

19:00 - Off to the center of Ghent for pub/drinking


Registration to this event is not mandatory. However it would make it easier for the organization if we would have a fairly accurate picture of how many people to expect. So we would kindly ask everybody who plans to attend to make this small effort. To register please click "Edit with form" on top of this page and add your name to the list in the "People otherwise attending this event:" field.
