- Key elements of the hackathon, which for this year is the mentoring program

After the hackathon, add a link to your blog post in a comment on the Phabricator task. We'll then reach out again and encourage you to collaborate with other bloggers to put together a post for the Wikimedia's official blog. And, then your write-ups will turn out to be of great help!
