Outcome[edit]

Option 2: Learning Pattern:

Wikimania is a great way of interacting with other wikimedians along the globe.At Wikimania I had discussions with Ashaf, Amir, Thobias & Michael and I learned about Wikidata.
At wikimania I exchanged views with wikimedians from different communities and came to know that there were many wikimedians "similar to me" who did not know about wikidata and how they could contribute to it.
As wikidata is an important project which is connected with other wikimedia projects, it is essential for the wikimedians to contribute in building a structured database.
So here I will be creating a learning pattern which can help wikimedians to organize events like "Wikidata-Edit-a-Thon" where they can learn, contribute, discuss & innovate wikidata.

Connections[edit]

This is the most appreciable thing about Wikimania. Here I met wikimedians from different countries and had conversations on community engagements, projects to promote wikimedia movements and much more. I also had discussions with Miya from Japan and we will start the Picture of the Year 2016 contest in commons on January 2017.

Anything else[edit]

I would like to thank the WMF for organising the Wikimania 2016 in such a beautiful place like Esino Lario. The Wikimania Esino Lario team and also the local people over there were very cooperative and helpful. They made great arrangements for us to make us feel comfortable. I would lastly like to thank for giving me the delightful opportunity to attend it and meet people out of the box.
