Registration open for the Hackathon in Berlin, May 13-15

Hi all!

Wikimedia Germany invites anyone interested in improving MediaWiki to come and
join us at or third developer meet-up. Like the last two years, it's going to be
awesome! Unlike the last two years, there will be more hacking and less talking
- it'll be a Hackathon, not a BarCamp.

We'll meet on May 13 to 15, in Berlin, on the 4th floor of the betahaus
coworking space <http://betahaus.de/>.

There will not be an entrance fee, but registration is mandatory and now open:


Registration will close on April 10. If you like to attend, please register in

* Interactive Maps
* Fixing the parser
* WMF Ops (new data center, virtualization)
* Supporting the Wiki Loves Monuments image hunt
