[Wikimedia-l] Re: [Wikitech-l] Wikimedia Hackathon: Call for Sessions

2022-04-27 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello all,


Following up on this thread - Komla (cc'd) and I are planning to moderate a
few sessions at the upcoming Wikimedia Hackathon; each focused on a popular
bot to show how one can set it up on their language wiki <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T306593> [1]. We are currently recruiting
session leaders who are owners / maintainers of a popular bot (for example,
<
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Starter_kit/Bots_and_Tools#Bots>
[2]). We want the session leader to address some commonly asked questions
about setting up a bot (see the task description for details). If you are
interested in joining our efforts and running a session around a bot that
you own, please share your interest in the Phabricator task linked above.


Best,

Srishti

Hello Handgod,

We currently do not have the resources to offer the workshop content in
different languages. We are investigating the possibility of taking this up
in future projects. One thing, though, is that we are presently exploring
Google Meet's live captioning feature, and interestingly, it offers
translations in French. As I have not tested this feature myself,
particularly for non-English translations, I am unsure how reliable it is,
something you might want to try out!

[Wikimedia-l] Third Pywikibot workshop on Friday, April 29th, 16:00 UTC

2022-04-15 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,


The third workshop on the topic of "Writing Pywikibot scripts" is coming up
- it will take place on Friday, April 29th at 16:00 UTC. You can find more
details on the workshop and a link to join here: <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops#How_to_write_a_basic_script_via_Pywikibot>
[1].


This workshop will introduce participants to writing basic scripts via the
Pywikibot framework. We will be focusing on examples of scripts that
participants have requested to cover in the workshop (e.g., finding and
replacing content, archiving discussions, etc.). You can add your ideas to
the ongoing discussion in the etherpad doc linked from the workshops page. If
you missed attending the previous two workshops, going through the workshop
materials beforehand would be beneficial.


We look forward to your participation!

[Wikimedia-l] Swag program for technical contributors

2022-04-07 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

We want to let you know about a new swag program for technical contributors
that the Wikimedia Foundation's Technical Engagement <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Technical_Engagement> [1] team has
developed in collaboration with the Fundraising Operations <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising> [2] team. This program will
reward technical contributors for their active participation in outreach
programs, events, and software projects by giving swag.

This is a small token of appreciation for the countless efforts of our
technical contributors!

In the first year of its operation, the swag program considers 85
individuals with significant contributions as developers, mentors, and
organizers in 2021 for each of the following areas.

   - Google Summer of Code & Outreachy
   - Small wiki toolkits
   - Gerrit code contributions
   - Wikimedia & Wikimania Hackathon

To learn more about each of these areas and the overall program, visit <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_tech_swag_program> [3]. If you
have any feedback or questions, or have suggestions around which areas to
cover, please share on the talk page.

2022-02-22 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello all,

We are sharing a few updates on the two mentoring programs.

* We have applied as a mentoring organization to Google (for GSoC) and
Software Freedom Conservancy (for Outreachy). The decision is still pending
from Google on our application.
* So far, we have received interest from 15 mentors to participate and
promote 9 projects in total. You can learn more about the projects here: <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2022#Ideas_for_projects>
[1] and <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Round_24#Ideas_for_projects> [2]
* The application period for Outreachy / GSoC will begin in the last week
of March / first week of April.

We do not have any remaining slots for Outreachy, but we would appreciate
any more project ideas you would like to promote / mentor via GSoC. You can
express your interest on the Phabricator task: <

[Wikimedia-l] Learn how to develop bots in small wiki toolkit workshops

2022-01-31 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hi all,

TLDR; Want to learn new technical skills to help improve your wiki? Sign up
for workshops on scripts and bot development, organized by the small wiki
toolkits initiative: <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops> [1].

Small wiki toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to build technical capacity in
smaller language wikis by developing toolkits, conducting workshops, and
providing technical support <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits> [2]. The first set of
workshops for 2022 will teach individuals how to automate work in their
wiki community by developing, maintaining, and hosting bots. These
trainings build upon the lessons learned from two regional initiatives in
2021: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Past_events> [3].

To sign up for a workshop, add your signature under a specific workshop
section on this page <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Workshops> [4]. The
first workshop is scheduled for February 25th, 16:00 UTC. The organizing
team will share more details on mailing lists and on your talk page closer
to the date of the workshop.

The SWT Organizing Team is also exploring issuing digital certificates and
badges to attendees of these workshops. More information on that will be
available in the coming weeks.

We look forward to your participation!

Cheers,
Srishti

[Wikimedia-l] Call for projects and mentors for Google Summer of Code 2022 and Outreachy Round 24 is ongoing!

2022-01-18 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

TLDR; Wikimedia will soon be applying as a mentoring organization to Google
Summer of Code 2022 <https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com> [1] and Outreachy
Round 24 <https://www.outreachy.org/> [2]. We are currently working on a
list of interesting project ideas to include in the application. If you
have some ideas for coding or non-coding (design, documentation,
translation, outreach, research) projects, share them here: <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T299453> [3].

*Timeline*
As a mentor, you will engage potential candidates in the application period
for both programs between March and April. You will help candidates make
small contributions to your project and answer any project-related queries
during this time. You will work more closely with the accepted candidates
during the coding period between May and August.

*New changes are coming to GSoC*
GSoC has exciting changes this year, including:
* Eligibility criteria redefined–the program is now open to all open-source
newcomers 18 years and older. It will no longer be solely focused on
university students or recent graduates.
* Multiple sizes of projects supported–ranging from ~175 to ~350 hr long.
* Increased flexibility in project timing–project deadline can be extended
to up to 22 weeks.

*Tips for proposing projects*
* Follow this task description template when you propose a project in
Phabricator: <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects> [4]. Add
#Google- Summer-of-Code (2022) or #Outreachy (Round 24) tag.
* Project should require an experienced developer ~15 days and a newcomer
~3 months to complete.
* Each project should have at least two mentors, and one of them should
hold a technical background.
* Ideally, the project has no tight deadlines, a moderate learning curve,
and fewer dependencies on Wikimedia's core infrastructure. Projects
addressing the needs of a language community are most welcome!
* If you don't have an idea in mind and would like to pick one from an
existing list, check out these projects: <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> [4]

Hello everyone,

This message is a reminder for folks who might be interested in mentoring a
project as part of the Outreachy program. Now would be the time to express
your interest (see details in this thread above).

So far, we have received interest from 3 projects, and we can fund up to 7
in the next round. We would also be happy to walk you through the process
individually if this will be your first time mentoring in the program.

[Wikimedia-l] Outreachy Round 23–call for projects and mentors now open!

2021-08-27 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia is participating in the winter edition of this year's Outreachy <
https://www.outreachy.org/> [1] (December 2021–February 2022)! The deadline
to submit projects on the Outreachy website is *September 30th, 2021*.

If you would like to share an idea for a project that you would like to
mentor or you are not familiar with the program and want to learn anything
more about it, feel free to reply to this email or leave a note on <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T289893> [2].

*About the Outreachy program*:
Outreachy offers three-month internships to work remotely in Free and Open
Source Software (FOSS), coding and non-coding projects with experienced
mentors. These internships run twice a year–from May to August and December
to March. Interns are paid a stipend of USD 5,500 for the three months of
work. They also have a USD 500 stipend to travel to conferences and events.
Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy
sponsors or jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.
This program is open to both students and non-students. Outreachy expressly
invites the following people to apply:

   - Women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.
   - Anyone who faces under-representation, systematic bias, or
   discrimination in the technology industry in their country of residence.
   - Residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are
   Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian,
   Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

See a blog post highlighting experiences and outcomes of interns who
participated in a previous round of Outreachy with Wikimedia <
https://techblog.wikimedia.org/2021/06/02/outreachy-round-21-experiences-and-outcomes/>
[3]

Some tips for mentors for proposing projects:

   - Follow this task description template when you propose a project in
   Phabricator: <
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> [4].
   Add #Outreachy (Round 23) tag to it.
   - Remember, the project should require an experienced developer ~15 days
   to complete and a newcomer ~3 months.
   - Each project should have at least two mentors, and one of them should
   hold a technical background.
   - When it comes to picking a project, you could propose one that is:
  - Relevant for your language community or brings impact to the
  Wikimedia ecosystem in the future.
  - Welcoming and newcomer-friendly and has a moderate learning curve.
  - A new idea you are passionate about, there are no deadlines
  attached to it; you always wanted to see it happen but couldn't
due to lack
  of resources help!
  - About developing a standalone tool (possibly hosted on Wikimedia
  Toolforge), with fewer dependencies on Wikimedia's core
infrastructure, it
  doesn't necessarily require a specific programming language.

See roles and responsibilities of an Outreachy mentor <
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors> [5].

We look forward to your participation!

Hello all,


This is a follow-up to a previous email about Toolhub’s quality signal
sessions on this list.


We are also organizing an async feedback round for *tool maintainers* to
gather their input on quality indicators for tools in the Wikimedia
ecosystem. We will use this feedback to develop a new feature set for
Toolhub to convey the quality of tools.


We have a few questions for tool maintainers that we have posted here
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Toolhub/The_Quality_Signal_Sessions#Discussion_topic_for_%22Quality_Signal_Sessions:_The_Tool_Maintainers_edition%22>

Your feedback would be valuable! You can share your feedback in response to
the discussion questions on the same topic; the last date to do so is
August 31st.


Best,

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimania Hackathon 2021: Call for sessions and projects now open!

2021-07-28 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello all,

This email is a reminder to start proposing projects and sessions for this
year’s Wikimania hackathon, taking place on August 13th (the first day of
Wikimania). You may have already seen the announcement email last week with
all the details.

This year’s hackathon will take place in a 24 hrs format covering all time
zones. You can start proposing a session or a project by following the
guidelines here: <
https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2021:Hackathon#Propose_a_project_or_a_session>
[1].

We also encourage folks to reuse the video of a previously recorded session
(in lecture format) to organize a watch party-style session. And, you can
pause during or after for questions and discussions. That way, you have to
do less prep, and one can watch your session at any time during the event.

There isn't a specific focus area proposed this time, so your session or
project needn't fit under a theme. Anything that involves MediaWiki
development or covers a technical area in the Wikimedia ecosystem. Plus, we
welcome sessions that would be helpful to newcomers–new to the event, our
technical spaces, or projects.

If you have any questions, feel free to use the related talk page to
contact the organizing team or join the community conversation on Telegram:
<https://t.me/wikimaniachat> [2].

We look forward to your participation!

[Wikimedia-l] Sign up for the Toolhub's quality signal sessions

2021-07-27 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello all,

We invite you all to sign up for Toolhub's Quality Signal sessions!

Toolhub <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Toolhub> [1] is a
community-authored catalog of Wikimedia tools. On Toolhub, you will be able
to discover new tools in the Wikimedia ecosystem, promote their use in your
wiki community, and help improve them by contributing data. Toolhub's first
release is planned around Wikimania 2021.

The Toolhub team is currently working on identifying quality indicators
through conversations with tool users and developers. As a tool user, how
do you know which tool is reliable, useful, and safe to use? As a tool
maintainer, what makes it attractive to you to contribute to an existing
tool? What information are you looking for to decide whether to join a tool
project? We hope that these sessions will help gather quality indicators
for tools and provide valuable insight toward developing new features to
convey the quality.

Want to organize a quality signal session in your community in August/early
September? Please get in touch on the talk page or sign-up for an already
planned session by adding your name below it: <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Toolhub/The_Quality_Signal_Sessions> [2].
Your feedback, thoughts, ideas would be valuable!

If you are attending Wikimania, we are running a few introductions and a
feedback session as part of the unconference. Learn more here: <

[Wikimedia-l] Mentor a data science and engineering project in Outreachy Round 21–call for projects now open!

2020-08-27 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia is participating in the winter edition of this year's Outreachy <
https://www.outreachy.org/> [1] (December 2020–February 2021) and plans to
mentor ~6 interns! The deadline to submit projects on the Outreachy website
is September 24th, 2020.

This round will be a bit different for Wikimedia–we are considering keeping
the focus of projects on data science and engineering. We hope that with a
particular theme, interns will have more opportunities to interact with and
support each other, and in turn, they will have a more fulfilling
experience! For example, a project could be to analyze publicly available
Wikimedia datasets to create valuable tools that can help perform vital
tasks or generate insights that help make data-informed decisions. A
project's nature could be coding or non-coding (documentation, design,
research, outreach, translation, etc.). Though we plan to prefer the
projects related to the theme, we still encourage you to reach out if you
have other ideas.

If you would like to share an idea for a project that you would like to
mentor or you are not familiar with the program and want to learn anything
more about it, feel free to reply to this email or leave a note on <
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T258524> [2].

About the Outreachy program:
Outreachy offers three-month internships to work remotely in Free and Open
Source Software (FOSS), coding and non-coding projects with experienced
mentors. These internships run twice a year–from May to August and December
to March. Interns are paid a stipend of USD 5,500 for the three months of
work. They also have a USD 500 stipend to travel to conferences and events.
Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy
sponsors or jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.
This program is open to both students and non-students. Outreachy expressly
invites the following people to apply:

   - Women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.
   - Anyone who faces under-representation, systematic bias, or
   discrimination in the technology industry in their country of residence.
   - Residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are
   Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian,
   Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

Some tips for mentors for proposing projects:

   - Follow this task description template when you propose a project in
   Phabricator: <
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> [4].
   Add #Outreachy (Round 21) tag to it.
   - Remember, the project should require an experienced developer ~15 days
   to complete and a newcomer ~3 months.
   - Each project should have at least two mentors, and one of them should
   hold a technical background.
   - When it comes to picking a project, you could propose one that is:
  - Relevant for your language community or brings impact to the
  Wikimedia ecosystem in the future.
  - Welcoming and newcomer-friendly and has a moderate learning curve.
  - A new idea you are passionate about, there are no deadlines
  attached to it; you always wanted to see it happen but couldn't
due to lack
  of resources help!
  - About developing a standalone tool (possibly hosted on Wikimedia
  Toolforge), with fewer dependencies on Wikimedia's core
infrastructure, it
  doesn't necessarily require a specific programming language.
   - See roles and responsibilities of an Outreachy mentor <
   https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors> [5].

We look forward to your participation!

Cheers,

[Wikimedia-l] NEW: Lists of technical resources and recommendations for smaller language wikis!

2020-07-20 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

As part of the Small wiki toolkits
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits> initiative, a Starter
kit <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits/Starter_kit> has
been developed for smaller language Wikimedia wikis! This Starter kit lists
resources, tools, and recommendations in technical areas (e.g., templates,
bots, gadgets, etc.) relevant to smaller wikis that are just getting
started. Small wiki contributors can use it to make their community's
workflow easier. You can now use and promote the Starter kit in your wiki
community, and start translating the landing page and its subpages in a
language you want.

If you have any questions, ideas for venues where it should be shared or
wiki pages where it should be linked, or any other suggestions for
improving it further, please share on this talk page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Small_wiki_toolkits/Starter_kit>.

If you are interested in helping with the Small Wiki Toolkits initiative
and can offer help with running workshops, developing toolkits, or
exchanging problems and challenges in smaller wiki communities, add
yourself as a member here:

[Wikimedia-l] Help smaller wiki communities grow their technical capacity!

2020-04-13 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello all,

Small Wiki Toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to support small wiki
communities by sharing and developing technical skills needed to support,
maintain, and grow a language wiki. You can learn more about it here:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits

As a next step for this initiative, we would like to share with you some
ideas on how you can be a part of this:

   - Contribute to a Starter kit <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T242545>
   by proposing or helping develop and write recommendations for technical
   topics in simple English.
   - Develop toolkits using the recommendations
   <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Develop_toolkits>
   on the SWT page. You can see existing toolkits in the
   Category:Small_wiki_toolkits
   <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Small_wiki_toolkits> on
   Wikimedia Commons.
   - Learn technical topics using the resources
   <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Toolkits> on the
   SWT page and apply the skills gained to provide technical support to a
   small wiki community.
   - Translate resources such as the SWT page itself and tutorials on
   technical topics linked from it.
   - Provide technical support
   
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Ask_your_technical_questions>
   on the support desk on mediawiki.org, mailing lists, etc.
   - Organize a technical workshop or a session to help a small wiki
   community.

If you want to help with any of the above or there is anything else you
would like to share around building local capacity in a small wiki,
please start
a discussion on the talk page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Small_wiki_toolkits> and/or add your
name to the list of interested members
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Small_wiki_toolkits#Members_list>.

[Wikimedia-l] Invitation to apply to Outreachy and Google Summer of Code program with Wikimedia!

2020-02-10 Thread Srishti Sethi
*(feel free to forward the message as is to your friends, family members &
colleagues)*
Hello folks,

We would like to invite you to apply to the Outreachy and Google Summer of
Code program with the Wikimedia Foundation (a non-profit organization
behind Wikipedia)!

*About the Outreachy program*
Wikimedia will be mentoring ~7 projects in the Outreachy program in the May
to August 2020 round. The initial applications are due February 25th at 4
pm UTC.

Apply today: https://www.outreachy.org/apply/

Outreachy offers three-month internships to work remotely in Free and Open
Source Software (FOSS) projects with experienced mentors. The internships
may include programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and
graphic design, or data science.

Outreachy internships run twice a year – from May to August and December to
March. Interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 USD for the three months of
work. They also have a $500 USD stipend to travel to conferences and
events. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy
sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they learned during their
internship.

Outreachy is open to both students and non-students. Outreachy expressly
invites the following people to apply:
* Women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.
* Anyone who faces under-representation, systematic bias, or discrimination
in the technology industry in their country or residence is invited to
apply.
* Residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are
Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, Native American/American Indian,
Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

*About the Google Summer of Code program*
Wikimedia is planning to mentor 8-10 projects in 2020’s Google Summer of
Code (GSoC) program. Beginning February 20th, pending Wikimedia’s
acceptance as a mentoring organization, applicants can begin discussing
ideas with the mentors!

The student application will be due on March 31st 18:00 UTC:
https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/

Google Summer of Code now in its 16th year, is Google's summer program for
university students who want to get involved in open source software. Over
15,960 students from 109 countries have already participated. Google Summer
of Code is a unique program that pairs students with mentors who introduce
them to the open-source community and provide guidance while they work on
real-world open-source projects during their summer break from university.

Projects cover a wide range of fields including: Cloud, Operating Systems,
Graphics, Medicine, Programming Languages, Robotics, Science, Security and
many more. It's a highly competitive program (and this year is expected to
be even bigger than last year), so don't wait until the last minute to
prepare!

*About the Wikimedia Foundation*
The Wikimedia Foundation <https://wikimediafoundation.org/> is the
nonprofit organization that hosts and operates Wikipedia and the other
Wikimedia
free knowledge projects
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/our-work/wikimedia-projects/>. Our vision
is a world in which every single human can freely share in the sum of all
knowledge. We believe that everyone has the potential to contribute
something to our shared knowledge, and that everyone should be able to
access that knowledge, free of interference. We host the Wikimedia
projects, build software experiences for reading, contributing, and sharing
Wikimedia content, support the volunteer communities and partners who make
Wikimedia possible, and advocate for policies that enable Wikimedia and
free knowledge to thrive.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia has been accepted as a mentor organization in GSoC 2019!

2019-02-27 Thread Srishti Sethi
Yeah, we can! But, we need projects with a clear scope and two mentors who
are willing to provide guidance to students throughout the summer
(May-August) as they develop their projects. And, this is not necessarily
the case with community wishlist projects that are not in the top 10. In
the past, we have tried to promote the wishlist projects through our
outreach programs but couldn't make any progress.

If any developer is interested in mentoring a project from the wishlist, I
would be happy to chat with them!

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia has been accepted as a mentor organization in GSoC 2019!

2019-02-26 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia has been accepted as a mentor organization in the Google Summer
of Code 2019 with 207 open source projects
<https://opensource.googleblog.com/2019/02/gsoc-2019-organizations.html> :)
And, application period for Outreachy Round 18 started last week.

We have listed a few ideas for projects for both programs on MediaWiki and
we are looking for more. Unlike Google Summer of Code, Outreachy is open to
non-students and non-coders and projects could be around documentation,
design, translation research, outreach, etc. View current list of ideas:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2019

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

Some helpful resources for you:
* Learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a mentor:

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Starting School Activity: Possible Support and Tips

2018-02-22 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello Zubin,

Glad to hear your interest in starting an activity around Wikimedia
projects at your high school!

We recommend developers looking to contribute code to our projects to start
with following our New Developers guide [1]. This guide contains
information on how to choose a project, list of beginner-friendly projects
and bugs, additional resources, outreach programs, and how to contribute in
non-technical areas.

We also have documentation of a workshop [2] we ran for high school
students around Wikimedia and Google Code-in, that you might find useful.

If you have a specific request for support from us, feel free to reach out
to me personally or come and chat with our team members on IRC at
#wikimedia-devrel.

Cheers,
Srishti

Hello all,

We are approaching towards the beginning of the student application period

time and interest to mentor, please create a task on Wikimedia Phabricator
and add a Google-Summer-of-Code-2018
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3096/> tag to it in the
next few days or so.

Check out the existing ideas for projects and program timeline here:

[Wikimedia-l] Google Summer of Code 2018: Call for projects and mentors

2018-02-12 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer
of Code 2018!

We already have recruited six project ideas and mentors, but we are looking
for a minimum of *14-15 ideas* more, as Google Summer of Code is a neat
platform to bring new developers :) https://www.mediawiki.org/
wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2018

If you are interested in mentoring a project, but not sure what the roles
and responsibilities of a mentor are like, take a look at our guide:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors. Feel free to
propose your own idea, or help by mentoring one of the below listed,
curated from the possible-tech-projects workboard:

   1. Tools for volunteers to make it easier to improve the Wikispeech
   lexicon https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T161310
   2. Notification your file was used https://phabricator.wikimedia.
   org/T77154

   4. Implement HTML e-mail support in MediaWiki

   6. Create tool to generate, track and show metrics for Tech News

   8. Allow having an on-wiki ToDo list per user

   9. Allow contributors to update their own details in tech metrics

We are also participating in Outreachy Round 16 and funding up to two
projects: https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/wikimedia/. Help us

[Wikimedia-l] Outreachy Round 15: Feature suitable projects and become a mentor

2017-08-28 Thread Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia is delighted to participate the eleventh time in the Outreachy
<https://www.outreachy.org/> internship program. The application period for
interns opens September 7th and will be due October 23rd. In the meanwhile,
we need your help -- we are looking for *suitable projects* and
*mentors*. Projects
could be anything ranging from programming, user experience, documentation,
illustration and graphical design, to data science.

If you would like to feature a project / become a mentor:


   1. Get an overview of the selection process, and your responsibilities
   before, during, and after the program
   https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Mentors
   2. Create a task, or modify an existing one on Wikimedia's Phabricator
   <http://phabricator.wikimedia.org>. Make sure it includes: *Project
   title, description (summary in 8-10 lines), skills required (Phabricator
   tags are welcome), mentors (required two), micro tasks (link to Phabricator
   task that must be completed to become a strong candidate).*
   3. Tag the tasks with #Outreach-Programs-Projects
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/profile/2537/> and
   #Outreachy-Round-15
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/2957/> on Phabricator.

Some more helpful information:

   If you know a newcomer, who meets the eligibility criteria
   <https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy#Eligibility>and would be a good fit
   for the program, encourage them to apply and follow our participation
   guidelines <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Participants>.


Cheers,
Srishti
