Hey, I am Kanak Raj. I am just new to this community and a whole to open source. I will love to join the community and get familiar with Wikimedia. I will love to complete this task and contribute something. I need help on how to start with this task.

Which technologies I have to be familiar with completing this task?
PAWS MediaWiki link I get the idea about the PAWS project. I came to know that PAWS provides Jupyter Notebooks for easy development. I am a regular user of Jupyter Notebooks as I am discovering Deep Learning. Can you give me an idea about where to start? How to know more about this PAWS project? And other interesting stuff.

This task is literally writing a for the repository

  • README is the go-to file to read when someone sees the repo and have absolutly no idea what the repo is about. It should have at least the information as described in the description of this ticket.
  • md is the Markdown format. See for help with the syntax.

The patch should be submitted by a GitHub Pull Request (PR). There are plenty of guides online if you search for "how to submit a pull request". Eg:

Looking at it, already exists. Probably nothing to be done and should close instead.

Sorry for the previous removal of the assignee. It was done by mistake. I must ask before claiming the task...

Ok, so can I update the file or can you help me find any other beginners task @zhuyifei1999

Generally no actually.. You don't really need to ask before claiming any task... Unless somebody is already assigned or has said that they are working on the task :)

As for beginner tasks, good first task would be a great place to start.
