Join Twitter and Wikipedia for our first language hackathon

Tweet

We’re excited to share that Twitter and @Wikipedia are co-organizing a hackathon focused on language tools and data!

If you love to work on building internationalization, localization tools, improving language support, fixing bugs or mashing structured data around languages, join us for this special event to work together, network, build cool tools and solve language problems.

Focus areas and lightning talks include:

  • Localization infrastructure
  • Community driven translation
  • UI/UX
  • Complex language and scripts
  • Input methods
  • Web fonts

Developers, designers, project managers or anyone interested in issues facing global users are invited to participate and contribute. A number of lightning talks and hands-on sessions are planned, plus prizes for some of the best hacks!

Bring your laptops and be ready to demo and openly share what you develop during the hackathon – all code developed at the hackathon will be open sourced and available on github.

The event will take place at Twitter HQ on November 1. Space is limited so please sign up to attend soon as you can. Join the conversation about our Hackathon by using the hashtag #langhack. We look forward to seeing you there.
