Wikipedia pulled Offline

The road to omnipresent Mediawiki content

A lot of projects have tried to deliver an offline version of Wikipedia. Most failed, some delivered results, the "Wikipedia Offline Client" project, created by undergraduate students of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. This talk will explain what has been achieved, what will be done and what makes this project different to other efforts dedicated to create an offline version.
