Play mediaFilm about the event
Wikimania 2005 was the first Wikimania conference and was held in the Haus der Jugend at Frankfurt, Germany, August 4–8, 2005. It had attracted about 380 attendees.
The week of the conference included four "Hacking Days", August 1–4, when some 25 developers gathered to work on code and discuss the technical aspects of MediaWiki and of running the Wikimedia projects. The main days of the conference, despite its billing as being "August 4–8", were Friday to Sunday of that week, August 5–7. Presentation sessions were scheduled all day during those three days.
Keynote speakers included Jimmy Wales, Ross Mayfield, Ward Cunningham, and Richard Stallman (who spoke on "Copyright and community in the age of computer networks"). The majority of sessions and conversations were in English, although a few were in German.
Sponsors of the event included Answers.com, SocialText, Sun Microsystems, DocCheck, and Logos Group.References
