Build and Deploy Ridiculously Advanced MediaWiki Websites

URL: http://thingelstad.com/,

[MediaWiki](http://mediawiki.org/) is well known as the wiki engine behind [Wikipedia](http://wikipedia.org/), but it is also an incredibly powerful platform to build a variety of services with. In this session we will explore advanced techniques for running MediaWiki, extending it’s capabilities with amazing extensions, and building ridiculously advanced websites with it. We will use [WikiApiary](http://wikiapiary.com/), a wiki I built, as an example of using a semantic data-driven wiki, robots to collect data and integrating a variety of libraries together into a cohesive solution. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the robust power of this software stack, and excitement to go and build crazy stuff with it!
