What will the participants take away from this session?

Participants will gain an overview of how to write a schema in the ShEx language and publish it to Wikidata's E namespace. We'll discuss how validating entity data against schemas in Wikidata's schema namespace can be used to improve data quality on Wikidata. We'll share pointers to resources for learning more and share tools that can be used for working with schemas and ShEx. Participants will see people write a schema live and get to ask questions about ShEx and Wikidata's schema namespace.
