First-time and experienced editors welcome! Basic Wikipedia editing skills are required, though hands-on assistance (and encouragement!) will be available on-site. See the event page or Wikipedia help page for online training resources and assistance. New editors are encouraged to create an account ahead of the event.
A limited number of computers will be available on-site, as well as workspace for personal laptops. You are also welcome to participate from home by simply adding your name to the attendees section.
