Community bonding period[edit]

Here are some recommended steps for current interns:

  • Start communicating with your mentors on refining your project proposal, finalizing deadlines and setting milestones
  • Join Zulip, a communication platform that program administrators will use to share announcements and opportunities for participating in Wikimedia activities
  • Write blogposts (first due by May 7th) and add it to the Bi-weekly Reports page
  • When you complete a task other than the coding work, for example, join Zulip, pass an evaluation phase, write a blogpost, make sure to add it to the Updates column in the Accepted projects section above
  • Upload your profile picture on Wikimedia Commons, and add it below your name in the Accepted projects section above
  • Stay in touch with Wikimedia community members and help them learn about you more:
    • Subscribe to Wikimedia mailing list wikitech-l@lists.wikimedia.org
    • Setup up your MediaWiki user page and keep it up to date with your project work and reports (example 1, example 2)
  • Read stories from across the Wikimedia movement on Medium
  • Watch previous videos on Wikimedia technical topics
