The twelfth Wikimania (the annual international conference of the Wikimedia movement) was held on the beautiful town of Esino Lario, Italy on 22-28 June. Unsurprisingly, Wikidata and GLAM issues featured prominently. The Wikidata-related parts of the program, including slides and notes, can be found on the Wikidata Wikimania page and the user digest session explaing the trend towards data donation on Wikidata with examples of a Sparql query generated map, ListeriaBot and GLAMorgan is here.
