Outcome[edit]

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

Had interaction with Bodhi who is a contributor in wikisource and commons. Carrying on with the interaction we had colloborated more in the upcoming wikiloves monuments Indian 2018. We had good discussion to include around 1500+ monuments in Tamil Nadu for the photography competition which was not included before.

Had colloborated with vegan people in the conference and attended a meetup for the Vegan people. Because of the meetup a user group Wiki loves Vegan is proposed.

Connections[edit]

I met developer Vivek Maskara. He is developing and maintaining android app for wikimedia commons. The app for wiktionary is not updated for the last six years. But it had high download counts. so was having talk with him for a collaboration developing wiktionary app too. Yes wikidata is pushing a long way to include lexicology. Still it is 3+ years away. So why do we have to restrict our wiktionary users a nice wiktionary app.?

I had good interaction with Subhashish Panigrahi who is doing nice work in wikitongues and in Odia community. I had good interaction with another developer Gyan sahoo. Due to the rappo developed during the wikimania i can ask for tech help with him anytime.

Had interaction with Bluerasberry regaring the wiktionary app. He introduced me to other people regarding that and gave suggestions regarding raising the issue in the upcoming community wishlist survey.
