Blog about your GCI experience (findings and learnings) with Wikimedia [recurring]
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

List of blog posts: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Code-in/2017#Wrap-up_blog_posts


This is a placeholder task for the list of potential tasks when applying as an organization for Google Code-in.
This task is not available until the last two weeks of the contest have started.

To claim this task, you must have completed at least 3 GCI Wikimedia tasks.

Take some time to reflect on the past GCI weeks with Wikimedia & share your thoughts with the world!

What was good? What did you learn, socially & technically? What could be improved?

Did you find enough interesting tasks? Which tasks did you miss? Was a task harder than expected and you are proud that you solved it? How was the interaction on IRC, mailing lists, Phabricator, Gerrit? How easy was setting up your development environment? Which documentation pages would you improve for the next contributor and how? (It's a wiki - you can edit it!)

Do you plan to continue contributing? Did you subscribe to some of Wikimedia's mailing lists to follow&join discussions? What is the next thing you want to work on? Have you checked New Developers or Annoying little bugs for more ideas?

These questions are just ideas: no need to answer (all of) them. But we do want to hear more from you than "It was a great experience. Some tasks were hard but I learned a lot." We helped you, you help us, so we can all learn together!

Publish your text on your personal blog (if you don't have one, consider creating one!) or any public place which is appropriate to reach more students like yourself. Your text must be published under a free CC-BY or CC-BY-SA license. Including an image is welcome but not mandatory. You can write in English or your own language.

Please post the link (URL) here and also add it to the wiki page.

If needed, I could pick up mentoring this task if necessary

I wrote one on my blog in Chinese: https://www.arefly.com/google-code-in-2017-wikimedia/ ☺️ (hope Google Translation works well!)

Though should we add the links to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Code-in_2016#Wrap-up_blog_posts or https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Code-in/2017?

Thanks! Whoops! 2017, not 2016. My copy and paste skills are improvable, it seems. :P

Closing this task as it was a placeholder in Phab for Google-Code-in-2017 which is ending these days (no more new tasks can be claimed from now on in GCI 2017).
