Abstract (up to 100 words)

Like last year Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2018/Programme/Submission/Create_your_first_Wikidata_Lua_infobox, we will have a workshop for absolute beginners to Lua infoboxes. We will look at how to get started with Lua and how to get data from Wikidata.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Especially wikis with smaller communities can benefit a lot from having Lua infoboxes. Having the information in infoboxes correct and up to date leaves more time for adding nicely written text to articles.

Special requirements

Bring a laptop. If you understand wikitext you can easily get started with Lua infoboxes.

Slides or further information

The presentation will follow parts of d:Wikidata:Infobox Tutorial
