Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikidata has a lot of data. Like really a lot, about aynthing and everything. This data can be used an endless number of possibilities, there is almost no limit. In this workshop, we will discover the Wikidata query service, a tool to harness the true power of Wikidata! With a few lines of SPARQL, you can browse any information contained in Wikidata, create wonderful lists such as the list of languages by numbers of speaker, languages with an article in other Wikipedias but not in the Wikipédia your language, list of words in English with all five vowels, the most common first letter in French, etc. More importantly, this is the opportunity to come with you ideas and to write the corresponding query together.

A queryboo will be present to help you write SPARQL query.
