Dear Wikimedians,

Here is my a short report of the Kolkata Wikipedia meet up &  workshop for
wikipedia  projects that was held on 2011 February 12 at *Indian Institute
of Foreign Trade*(Kolkata Campus)* *Saltlake, EP Block, Sector
V,Kolkata,West Bengal.

The Meet up and workshop was attended by more than 25 participants.

The workshop was divided into two sessions. The first session was an
introductory presentation about Wikipedia, and wikiprojects. In the second
session we introduced Wikipedia editing to the participants.

The participants asked many questions about wiki, Wikimedia Foundation,
Wikipedia, sister projects and so on. They also asked some queries regarding
directorial board, why pages are protected, policies, and so on. The
participants are introduced to wikipedia editing with wikimarkup in a simple
way.

Kolkata wiki community is planning to organize many more workshops in the
near future.
