While the Wikimedia Hackathon 2022 was planned to be virtual, local Wikimedians were encouraged to create their own regional meetups. Wikimedia DC and Wikimedia NYC held their respective in-person meetups for the DC Hackathon 2022 and 2022 Hacknic Prospect Park Brooklyn. This marked the first significant in-person meetup for some Wikimedians in almost two years.
There was a demonstration and training on how to use Google Sheets with Wikipedia/Wikidata functions, with more info found at m:Wikipedia and Wikidata Tools.
User:Fuzheado demonstrated extensions to Google Sheets scripts to pull in ORES ratings and other information, and how these were used for GLAM institutions to evaluate the overall quality of worklist at places such as The Met Museum and Smithsonian Institution. The page m:Wiki List Tool was started to help document this.
The ISA tool was used to provide an easy on-ramp to contributing info to Structured Data on Commons, even allowing for some of our young 11-year-old participants to add depiction information for Metropolitan Museum of Art collections. Example data set from The Met.
