Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
In this technical presentation we want to give an overview of the planned software architecture of Wikidata and how it ties in with Mediawiki and Wikimedia’s server infrastructure. Wikidata faces many technical challenges in order to make it work on Wikipedia-scale. We want to explain how we are going to address them. Among other things, we will describe how data records are transcluded between wikis, and how changes are recorded and propagated throughout the system.

Context: Wikidata is a new project by Wikimedia Deutschland with the goal to create a data repository for Wikipedia and the world. It aims to be Wikimedia Commons for data. Imagine only having to edit data in one place and then being able to reuse it across Wikipedia and beyond. Imagine no-longer having to curate lists of articles by hand. What if instead that would be happening automatically? Imagine small Wikipedias being able to bootstrap hundreds of articles by using data that was curated in larger Wikipedias. This and much more is what we are working to make reality.

Wikidata holds huge opportunities for Wikipedia and we're here to talk about them. Community support and involvement is extremely important for the success of Wikidata and we want to take this as an opportunity to let you know about the work we have already done and what the plans for the next months are.
