Training Events


Mediawiki Awareness and Training in Indic Projects is an awareness and training program for our Indic Language Project as well as for students. This will be mostly conducted in Hindi and mostly training will be done online.


The problem is lack of Mediawiki knowledge in Indic Projects. There is rumour that MediaWiki is only for developer. It is totally wrong. Personally, I installed MediaWiki on my computer for learning sysop works. Anyone can use MediaWiki, even if they don't know programming language. MediaWiki is very best thing for testing gadgets and installing before deploying on Languages Project.
