Sucheta, I will email the Wikimedia developers' list to let them know
that you would like some MediaWiki developers to attend.
Here are some flyers or notes that you can use if they are suitable for you.
Ten things technically inclined volunteers can do to help Wikimedia
The "please contribute to MediaWiki" flyer --
Also, I am the coordinator for MediaWiki's participation in the Google
Summer of Code, a selective paid summer internship for college students
who want to work remotely on open source software projects. The
homepage for that effort is
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code and the best guide
is http://en.flossmanuals.net/GSoCStudentGuide/ .
I hope these are useful to you. Please feel free to translate, print,
modify, link, and so on. Thank you! Good luck and best wishes! Hope you
can realize great outcomes from this event. :-)
