More to learn


Further details about what I would like to learn.

1. Tools developed to automate processes (e.g. AutoWikibrowser, Pywikibot) 2. Using Wikisource 3. Methods and tools for qualitative evaluation I'm interested in learning more about tools that can help me in monitoring and evaluation as well as how to use Wikisource as we just started our Igbo Wikisource in the incubator.

Stories about sharing


Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

1. Wikimedia Incubator and setting up Wikimedia projects in new languages 2. Volunteer management and development 3. Event organising (Project management) As a language activist and project manager, most of my work entails setting up new language projects in the incubator as well as working in working in the incubator. I've successfully worked to add the Makhuwa Wikipedia and the Logooli Wikipedia into the incubator as well building a community of volunteers around them. I've also supported the growing community in Sudan to add their language project into the incubator.
