- This project will be about developing sample code in two or more programming languages to demonstrate the use of MediaWiki Action API modules. In this project, I will design and embed a tabbed window on the API pages, write a code generator and document the sample code on API modules pages and also create a demo app.
Have you contacted your mentors already?
- Yes, I have contacted with @srishakatux
I am a 1st-year student of Bachelor of Technology (Computer Science & Engineering). My University is Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University. I have programming experiences for more than 4 years as I had computer science as my stream during High-School.
How did You hear about this Program ?
- I heard about this program in the Wikimedia world during last year. when I kept my eyes on phabricator task for the new bug. then I eagerly researched on GSoC.
Will you have any other time commitments, such as school work, another job, planned vacation, etc, during the duration of the program?
- I have my end semester exam in the month of May. But it will end before the Coding officially begins!. So as of now, I do not have any other time commitments. And there will college vacation from the end of May to mid-August. So I will have enough time to give more time to this project.
We advise all candidates eligible for Google Summer of Code and Outreachy to apply for both programs. Are you planning to apply to both programs and, if so, with what organization(s)?
- I am only planning to apply for Google Summer of Code with Wikimedia Foundation.
What does making this project happen mean to you?
- It matters a lot to me. I am very enthused about the free open sources software. and want to support the FOSS. In here Wikimedia world, When I take MediaWiki Traning sessions as a resource person. Participants asked me about the GSoC program. The Real experience of GSoC can help me to express GSoC in depth. I want to help in the coordination of Wikimedia's GSoC Project from next.

About Web App
I picked the demo web app from the community demand, There is a long-standing requirement of Qr Code Generator in the Wiki Community. I have communicated with two wiki community member. @Bodhisattwa and @jayantanth who have 1+ lakhs edit on Wikimedia project. I have talked with Bodhisattwa. He said that PNG is not helpful. We need a QR code generator which can generate QR code in High-Quality SVG. And there is some project which will use the QR code like Wiki Knowledge Menu. The community eagerly wants a tool. That can generate the Qr Code of wiki URLs. This is also discussed in Wiki-India Mailing list. The details of the app can be found here
