Anything else[edit]

  1. Getting scholarship let me be in Berlin the week before the Wikimania which was super productive since I was at the analytics team off-site. I was at WMDE office for a week and made patches and deployed ORES review tool in Persian Wikipedia and Wikidata. Here's is overview of my patches at that time.
  2. There are two projects that I saw in the Wikimania and they sound really cool to me: mw:Extension:UrlShortener (like and mw:Extension:Newsletter :)
