Outcome[edit]

Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.
Here is the link to my learning pattern : Birds of a feather
Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

Connections[edit]

My talk was on Zero cost strategies for Wikimedia outreach. I also joined the panel about social media and Wikimedia grants. I also helped facilitate the Wikiwomen's lunch and a session on diversity of participation. I organized the Wikimania jury meetup during which some crucial decisions were made and Indic meetup where a lot of new ideas sprang up. My meeting with the Program Evaluation & Designs team helped me to learn more about evaluating my projects smartly. Apart from meeting some of the friends whom I knew only via Wikipedia, I also met people from outside of Wikimedia. It was a pleasure to meet most staff members and Chapter members whom I regularly keep in touch with. I got to meet members from Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Africaans, French, German and Arabic communities and identified that most of the language communities are facing similar challenges as Indic communities. I could discuss possible solutions and best practices with them. I also met participants representing Mozilla and Open Data.
