Brief Intro To Our Wikibase Extensions
2021-10-31, 14:30–14:45 (UTC), Room 1

With funding from the community, we created three open source extensions Wikibase. These provide support for local media, extended date time formats and integration with Semantic MediaWiki. In this short session I will demo the functionality and answer your questions.
