Since 2020, the default desktop skin of the Wikimedia wikis has been changed to a new skin, currently known as Vector 2022. The communities have a lot of questions which I would like to address at the Meeting. Also, other major changes will come soon, like dark mode.

At first, there will be a presentation, next we'll play with a prototype (bring your laptops!), and then have a discussion.

They will be invited to ask questions about Vector 2022 and other major technical projects. They will also be able to share their experience from the release process, and share ideas on the improvements of this process.

  • Hi! How are you? Thank you so much for your workshop. Can Vector 2022 skin be modified in the future in order to serve as a single interface for both desktop & mobile editors? Best wishes,--W (talk) 13:40, 30 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
