We are glad to inform you that Asaf Bartov[1] will visit India in the month of September 2017, and will be conducting local workshops on Wikidata and other recent technologies and tools. You might be aware that Asaf is a promoter and trainer of Wikidata, and before and during this year's Wikimania, Indic Wikimedians from two communities requested Asaf to visit India to conduct more Wikidata workshops.

The workshop would include extensive Wikidata training, from absolute beginner level through querying and embedding Wikidata in Wikipedia (incl. infoboxes), as well as a general tools demonstration, including Quarry. Additionally, time would be made for general Q&A ("ask me anything") to let people use the opportunity to directly ask a WMF representative anything that they have on their mind.

Asaf would come to India on 29 September. Please see the detailed plan here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Asaf_(WMF)/2017_Technical_trainings_in_India
