Apa itu Wikimania? اڤ ايت ويكيمانيا؟

Wikimania is the annual conference celebrating Wikipedia and its sister free knowledge projects with three days of conferences, discussions, meetups, training, and workshops. Hundreds of volunteers and Free Knowledge leaders from around the world gather to discuss issues, report on new projects and approaches, and exchange ideas.

Themes of the 2017 conference included the advancement of Free Knowledge, the role of academic and cultural institutions within the movement, privacy and rights, and the role of technology to further those objectives. Wikimania 2017 also featured a deeper look at the role of the Movement within the Francophonie, and a number of program elements focusing on advancement of French within the projects.

Beyond the main event, there were other related events: the hackathon where the technical community around the Wikimedia projects joined together to work and contribute, and multiple preconferences.

The event was held in and around the Centre Sheraton Montréal, in Montréal, Canada from August 9 to August 13, 2017.
