The August Working Hour, Next steps after installing a Wikibase instance -- creating users, items, and properties, will feature two Presentations: 


Next steps with WBStack

Presented by Ryan Mendenhall, Metadata Librarian, Columbia University

Following on the WBStack session earlier this year, this continuation will look briefly at WBStack interfaces for Federated properties, Mappings, QuickStatements, and the WBStack query service.


Next steps with Wikibase

Presented by Jim Hahn, Head of Metadata Research at the Penn Libraries.

Following on the Wikibase install session from Spring, this continuation will provide an overview of a local Wikibase configuration once you have Wikibase running on your laptop. The following tasks will be covered: account management features -- including adding users; importing items and properties from Wikidata; a demonstration of configuring and using the Wikibase query service. The Wikibase-docker GitHub repository used in the previous session is archived and this session will make use of the latest documentation: Wikibase/Docker - MediaWiki. The new docker compose files live in wikibase-release-pipeline.
