00:07 - How to handle data and run statistical
analyses in MediaWiki
Juha Villman
Presentation will contain brief introduction to Opasnet and the
ideas behind it. Main focus will be on data related issues: how to
handle and how to use massive amounts of data in MediaWiki
and as well demonstrate how easy it is to run R on wiki.

15:40 - ResourceLoader
Roan Kattouw, Trevor Parscal
MediaWiki 1.17 was deployed to all Wikimedia wikis in February,
with ResourceLoader as its flagship feature. ResourceLoader
is a JavaScript and CSS delivery system that modernizes the
development and delivery of client-side resources.

38:20 - Opening up Wikipedia's data: A lightweight approach to Wikipedia as a platform
Dario Taraborelli, Diederik van Liere, Ryan Lane
There is a final frontier where Wikipedia and its sister projects
are not as open as they could or should be: non-human
interactions. Wikimedia's infrastructure is designed to make it
possible for millions of humans worldwide to freely reuse its
contents, but it falls short of providing tools to allow third-party
services to easily reuse its data. The goal of this presentation
is to start a discussion on what it takes to rethink Wikipedia
as a platform (WAAP) to facilitate the reuse of its contents in
the form of structured data. In this talk we will focus on two
technologies—Wikilytics and OAuth—that, combined, could
spearhead the creation of an ecosystem of new services based
on Wikipedia's data. Wikilytics is an analytics platform to answer
questions about the different Wikipedia communities.

53:45 - A Qt library for MediaWiki, and what you can do with it
Guillaume Paumier
This short talk will present a Qt library to interact with the
MediaWiki API, developed during a university project. Examples
of applications based on the library will be demoed, including
basic editing and uploading programs, plasma desktop widgets,
and a KIPI export plug-in to mass upload photos from desktop
