Accepted Session
Long Form
Scheduled: Wednesday, June 25, 2014 from 10:00 – 11:45am in B301


Mediawiki is one of the most commonly used "wiki's" across a plethora of sites. So I will help you build your own "Mediawiki Extension" that will help you to enhance the features of your wiki.


Extensions let you customize how MediaWiki looks and works. Extensions can be used to enhance the wiki markup, to change the look and feel of the entire page, to increase and add security measures and all that it takes it make an appealing wiki with some cool custom features.

I will be teaching you the basics of MediaWiki Extension development right from the scratch and will be providing you with resources to start your own adventure

All that you need to have is a very basic familiarity with HTML, CSS, PHP and JS
