Re: [Wikimedia-l] [MediaWiki-l] Logo of MediaWiki has changed

2021-04-01 Thread Derick Alangi
Hi Amir,

Thank you & the whole team that worked on making this change. The logo
alone makes the website now look really different & being someone that
loves UI changes, I love this change.

I remember it like just yesterday when I participated in the voting
process. This is a great effort! Thanks

[Wikimedia-l] [Google Summer of Code 2019 / Outreachy Round 18] Call for projects and mentors!

2019-01-10 Thread Derick Alangi
Hello everyone,

We are now recruiting projects to promote in Google Summer of Code 2019 and
Outreachy Round 18!

Both these programs have a similar timeline for the summer round. Accepted
candidates will work with mentors from May to August 2019.

Through both these programs, we bring new contributors to Wikimedia
technical projects. Browse through Outreach programs
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreach_programs> to learn more.

Earlier we promote the projects, better it works out for everyone. Students
get enough time to prepare their application, organization administrators
to do ample outreach and mentors to find a strong candidate for their
project.

If you are interested in mentoring a project, create a task on Phabricator
and tag it with #outreach-programs-projects
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> and
#Google-Summer-of-Code (2019) or #Outreachy (Round 18). You can also choose
to mentor for projects already on outreach-program-projects
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/>
workboard. Remember, every project must have two mentors. Learn more about
the roles and responsibilities of a mentor
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors>.

To get some idea of the nature of projects, see the completed Google Summer
of Code and Outreachy projects from last year
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/2018/08/27/google-summer-of-code-outreachy-round-16/>.


Help us spread the word about Wikimedia's participation in these programs
and looking forward to your participation! :)

*Cheers,*
