Presentation Open Access

Jupyter in the Wikimedia ecosystem

Mietchen, Daniel


This repo hosts materials related to the JupyterCon 2020 talk "Jupyter in the Wikimedia ecosystem", which is part of the "Jupyter in Education" track:

  • The Jupyter notebook through which the presentation was given
  • An HTML version of the notebook
  • A pre-recording of the presentation based on the notebook.

An executable copy of the notebook is available via

A static copy of the notebook is available via .

Copies of the video are available via as well as on the JupyterCon channel via .



This presentation is intended to (i) make the Jupyter community more familiar with current and potential usages of Jupyter in Wikimedia contexts, (ii) explore how Jupyter resources can become more findable and accessible by leveraging the reach of Wikimedia projects. It will be given based on and does not assume any background knowledge other than a basic familiarity with Jupyter.

After a brief introduction to Wikimedia projects - which include Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata and similar collaborative sites - we will explore existing usage examples of Jupyter in Wikimedia contexts. Based on the assumption that the two communities are mission-aligned and would benefit from closer interaction, we will then consider potential usage examples based on overlaps in mission and activity of the Jupyter and Wikimedia communities.

In closing, developers and maintainers of Jupyter-based educational materials or Jupyter-related functionality shall be stimulated to consider whether and how such materials or functionality might fit into the Wikimedia ecosystem, or, conversely, how they can leverage Wikimedia resources for educational and related purposes.
