Event Timeline

This message is for all candidates interested in working on this project for Outreachy. Please make sure that before you start working on this project, you've filled out an initial application to help Outreachy organizers verify whether or not you are eligible to participate in the program: https://www.outreachy.org/eligibility/. It should only take you 5 minutes to 30 minutes to complete.

Once you've submitted your initial application, it may take up to a week for Outreachy organizers to review your application and make a decision. Once you are approved, you can start working on the microtasks. In the meanwhile, read our participants guide https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Participants and learn about the Wikimedia movement https://www.wikimedia.org/.

I am Sneha, I just finished my environment setup as mentioned. what will be my next step for contribution?

Thanks,
Sneha

Hi! Please check out the microtasks linked above. Thanks :)

@Snehaniranjana Were you able to finish all the steps listed in the microtask you were working on? It looks like one of the requirement was also to "document the steps and what improvements/additions to the current documentation you'd make." You could discuss with your mentor @zeljkofilipin @Etonkovidova where is the best place to document this process.

If you have finished working on a microtask, and you want to keep learning more about this project, then you could work on the second one. There is no limit on the number of tasks you should work on during the application period :-) All depends on your interest and time you have.

For, the next step, as the application deadline is October 30th, maybe another ten days from now you might want to start crafting your proposal (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Participants#Application_process_steps).
