Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.

This was my Second Wikimania. During the Wikimania I actively shared my experience through social media like twitter. This year 4 of managed to get scholarship from Bangladesh. During the event we met with the grant team members to discuss about over all grants of Wikimedia Bangladesh and shared the gist with the community members. Currently, I'm writing a brief blog post in the popular Bengali blog site about my whole Wikimania experience.

During the whole Wikimania, I was actually interested on outreach, Wiki loves monuments & technical related sessions. After got back from Wikimania I've already started to implement my experience in outreach program and upcoming WLM. Here's some sessions and meetings I've attended during Wikimania:

  • Wikipedia Asian Month
  • Bengali Wikipedians' meetup
  • Asian meetup
  • Wikimedia SAARC meetup


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 Wikimedia projects - helping each others ),

Anything else[edit]
