Thanks Sumana,

This is a great news for many techno-aspirants, there are many students who are quite interested in the MediaWiki developments rather than WP editing. Hope to see many Indic language developers and translators there :)

You are invited to the Pune Wikimedia hackathon.

Date: 10-12 February 2012
Venue: Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies & Research (SICSR) at
Symbiosis International University, Pune
Extremely rough event page, soon to get more details:

A Wikimedia hackathon is a chance to learn how to develop using
MediaWiki, Phonegap, and our other technologies, and to work alongside
experts. Software engineers, designers, and translators are welcome.
We're tentatively planning to focus on internationalisation and
localisation, mobile and offline Wikipedia access, and the gadgets
framework.  I aim to get more details in the next two weeks.

If you're interested, please leave your name and your email address, or
a link to your user page, on that event page. (A "real" registration
system is coming soon.)  Thanks!

And please feel free to publicize this elsewhere.  I've heard that, when
marketing, you have to get the message to the recipient three times in
three different ways before you have a good chance they've noticed it.
So if you need something to help get the word out -- a sample
tweet/dent, a leaflet, etc. -- let me know.
