Comments from the committee[edit]

Thank you for submitting this grant report, Harsh4101991. Before the committee accepts your report, please provide a link to one outcome from your participation. You may not have noticed, but the reporting format and requirements have changed since your last approved TPS grant request. Kindly refer to the instructions at Grants:TPS/Report for more details. On a separate note, I would like to confirm that we have received your receipts, which are also currently under review. Thank you for sending them. Please let me know if you have any questions about reporting. -- Best, Jtud (WMF) (talk) 01:45, 19 April 2015 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for this. But my worksop is basic of MediaWiki Gadgets. So explained them to how to use JavaScript and other technologies to contribute into Wikipedia. They created basic gadgets for practice. I explained and showed various concepts and parameters. So I don't have link to outcome of this. The major outcome is lots of people are JavaScript pro and others from Wikimedia Community they learned to make gadgets. So in future they can create gadgets for more reading or editing experience enhancement. In my workshop one of the participant has created physical reader for brain people. I explained him how to use APIs of mediawiki and how he can manage to read articles of Wikipedia by programmatically. Please guide me how I can put this. --Harsh4101991 (talk) 17:19, 21 April 2015 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for your reply, Harsh. One way to share results of your participation could be reporting on the 'new creation' created as a result of your workshop. You mentioned attendees of your workshop learned to make gadgets. You could add links to show what some of these gadgets might be. If you don't have links, perhaps you can connect some of your workshop attendees who created something and ask for a link. It sounds like a majority of them created something during the workshop. Another way to share outcomes of your participation could be creating a learning pattern to share your experience and insights from your holding a workshop. You may also add your ideas, examples, endorsements, etc. to an existing pattern about gadgets or workshops or some other topic that is related to what you've learned or want to share about your participation. I hope some of these ideas have helped. -- Best, Jtud (WMF) (talk) 00:28, 22 April 2015 (UTC)Reply
