We will also cover Javascript-related tasks for beginners, contribution process steps, and other ways for volunteers to get involved in the community projects, such as through mentoring programs and events.This event is targeted at digitally non-inclusive groups and marginalised communities who will witness a tech event and take part for the first time in their region. The 48-hour Wikimedia Hackathon will cover 80- 100 student developers across India. We will have trainers and mentors from Wikimedia Foundation and volunteers community who will train the students and also guide them throughout the Hackathon.
