About Wiki Education Android app:

Wiki Edu Dashboard App is an Android client for the Wiki Education Dashboard API to support managing programs, including edit-a-thons, education programs, and other events.

• Add a list of my articles (articles assigned to me) on the course page.

About Me

Personal background

I graduated from federal Polytechnic Oko, Nigeria.I studied Computer Science but have gained my programming knowledge from online contents. I started with writing desktop applications in Java before diving into Android development. I love working with teams and I have been longing to be a part of many open source projects. Although am not used to open source but I have good knowledge of git and github.

How did I hear about this program?

A friend shared the link with me before I found a post about it on a slack community (shecode Africa)
Activities During the Internship period
I am currently training with an institution to improve my android skills which will end by December and my Training does not stop me from participation but rather give me more opportunity and resources to quickly complete my task
Wikipedia has been my source of truth to me for years now, I make research, assignment and lots others from there and other sister products like wikiquotes, wiktionary and wikidata have also added so many informations to my life. During the contribution phase I have identified various issues, worked on them and also worked on issues identified by others

Past Experience in Android Development

I started learning android development on my own last year through resources on the internet, I have personal projects on github that I used in developing myself before I discovered a remote internship ( Internship) where I participated and came out as a finalist. In this internship we started two projects.

• Used Node Js for Back end
• Got information from Wikipedia and some other sources about the Apoe4 gene during research process
• Github Link

Event Timeline

Aklapper renamed this task from OUTREACHY 2019 PROPOSAL , Outreach of the App and add new features in Wiki Education Dashboard Android App to [Proposal] Outreach of the App and add new features in Wiki Education Dashboard Android App.Oct 20 2019, 6:51 AM
Aklapper added a project: Outreachy (Round 19).

Hi @Kulloveth , I will like to mention 3 points:

  1. You can re-use the UI for showing articles, uploads, recent edits,.. from existing fragments so we don't need to create new fragments.
  2. In week 11, the activity which you are talking about is already existing - MediaDetailsActivity so you can probably add something else instead of that.
  3. If possible add try to include feature in your proposal.

Otherwise, the proposal is good.

Thank you @Ujjwalagrawal17 ,for task 11 , I was thinking Campaign has a different media. I will edit the task as requested

Hi @Kulloveth the proposal looks great to me. Just 1 more thing I will like to mention. We will like to take feedback from users twice instead of once. One at the beginning of the Internship, one at the end. It will be great if you can arrange some time for that. We can do that parallely with some coding task.
