Outcome[edit]

Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
I have written a blog post about my experience at Wikimania 2018. It can be found here.
Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
I attended the sessions on Wiki Loves Monuments and learned how to organise the country specific event. I had several queries which were cleared in that session. Also learnt about the Montage tool and how to use it. These are helping me a lot as a co-organiser of Wiki Loves Monuments India 2018.
