  • As a result of my talk people participating will learn about Wiki Loves Maps project and how to add Wikipedia articles for the places on OpenStreetMap,combining both projects.I will also talk about Wiki Loves Maps project in Albania
  • There will be more than 25 people participating at the event.
  • People participating will be aware about Wiki Loves Maps project.
  • I will write a blog post to share conference learning with others and also I will talk at Wiki Weekend Tirana 2017 about my experience and things which I learned participating at FOSScamp Syros 2017 and at Open Labs visit to Hack42.
  • Except what I mention above our (me and my friend from Open Labs) main goal for this event is that we can cooperate in the future with Hack42 and all the paricipants about Wikimedia project.
