In this project, you will be able to learn the basic concepts of scripting MediaWiki. We will cover concepts like basic HTTP requests, the query and API interfaces to MediaWiki, how to sign on to a MediaWiki installation and retrieve information, and how to save changes to pages.

Note: The examples used in this project will use C# and the .NET Framework. It should not be too difficult to port the code to other object-oriented languages such as C++, Java or VB.NET.
