Outcome[edit]

Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?

First of all, This was my first Wikimania. When I got the Scholarship I was excited because the first thought came in my mind is that “oh, yes, at last I could meet people I’m work with.” Thanks to Wikimania. This year two of us made it from Bangladesh. During the conference, we were able to publish news in our local print & electronic medias day to day basis & posted them in WMBD & bnwp’s official facebook & twitter pages. A bangla blog post about my experience in Wikimania can be found here. Here’s some link of those news:

During the whole Wikimania, I was actually interested on outreach & technical related sessions. I was also interested on Global metrics, newly created translation tool (which I think is really cool). After got back from Wikimania I've already started to implement those experience in outreach education program. As I'm involve with wmbd Currently, we're trying to arrange high school related school program which is designed to encourage children to use Wikipedia & other projects rather than contributing to it. Another thing we're trying to arrange is "Wikicamp" which is a very potential & cool project in my point of view.

Connections[edit]

During the Wikimania I met some wonderful people, learned from them & shared some. Thanks for the time guys, Here's some fellows I can remember (If I forgot to add your username, please add yours by all means. After all that's what we're doing in wm projects Face-wink.svg ),
