  1. Continue working on your projects under the guidance of mentors
  2. Continue writing bi-weekly reports and linking them from Updates section above and here

Before the internship period kick-off (Nov 9th-Dec 5th)[edit]

  1. Start communicating with your mentors on refining your project proposal, finalizing deadlines and setting milestones
  2. Join Zulip that we will use to share program-related announcements and opportunities for participating in Wikimedia activities
  3. Write blogposts (first due by Nov 23rd) and add it to the Bi-weekly Reports page
  4. 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 table
  5. (Optional) Upload your profile picture on Wikimedia Commons, and add it below your name in the Accepted projects table
  6. (Optional) Stay in touch with Wikimedia community members and help them learn about you more:
