Hi all!

I am Lalit from India. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in IT, currently working as a Software Developer at Redhunt Labs.

I will be working on Extending the WikidataComplete plugin to enable data donations, recommendations, and gamification. My primary focus would be implementing a web service interface for data donations to help extend the Wikidata knowledge base.

My mentors for the project are Dennis Diefenbach, Andreas Both, Aleksandr Perevalov, and Kunpeng GUO.

I have learned a lot by interacting and contributing to the Wikimedia community, feeling special to get a chance to give something back to it. Thanks to my mentors and coordinators from Wikimedia for their continuos to support. Looking forward to a productive summer ahead ^_^

Thanks,
Lalit

Hello Everyone!

My name is Roberto from Mexico, currently living in the UK. I am an undergraduate Computer Science and Philosophy student. I will be working alongside Mike, Andy, and Feliciss on the "What's in a Name?" Outreachy project. This will allow for names from scientific articles to be automatically detected and added to Wikidata.

I have genuinely fallen in love with Wikidata throughout the contribution period, and I am so excited to work with the team to make this project come to life!

Cheers,
Roberto

Hi all!

This is Vaidehi from India. I am currently an undergraduate Engineering student. I will be contributing to the Programs and Events Dashboard by making it capable of tracking edits to various namespaces. This would basically improve dashboard's flexibility by allowing organizers to get statistics for particular namespaces.

I am thankful to my mentor Sage Ross for guiding me till now. Also enjoyed interacting with other people on the team.

Really excited and looking forward to a great time ahead.

Thanks and Regards,
Vaidehi
