Outcome[edit]

First time Wikimania out of city and its really great experience for me to attend the Wikimania 2016. I share our working experience, our recent activities with others fellow wikimedians. From WMBD I give photo printed mug/wristband as gift to Jimmy, Patricio, Katherin and others Wikimedians who attend this year Wikimania. I write regularly news, take photo and all news published Bangladeshi leading newspaper Prothom Alo and onilne portal.

From starting day I write everyday news for bengali newspaper[1][2][3]. After back from Wikimania I write a blog post in my personal website with so many photos [3]. Also write a big story about this wikimania for a monthly ICT magazine. The article published this month as a feature story of that magazine. During the Wikimania, I shared stories, events and experiences that I gathered through social media, especially Twitter.
