Hi, I'm Anjana living in east coast of the U.S. I hope to improve my testing skills by contributing to a testing team in the wiki world.

1. Subscribe to the QA list (qa@lists.wikimedia.org)

2. We are on IRC in #wikimedia-qa on freenode. To join the chat, create a Nickname on https://webchat.freenode.net/ and use #wikimedia-qa for channel.

2. Introduce yourself in this QA list with your name, interests, your time zone, best way to contact you, your nick on freenode etc.There are a lot of people who will help you. You can also pair with Zelkjo to help you get started.[See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Pair_programming_Friday_for_fun_and_profit for more details]

3. Read https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Quality_Assurance#Test_environments and https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployment to know the test environments and deployment schedule.

4. Create accounts on test environments : http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org and http://test2.wikipedia.org and play with "preferences" in your account.

5. Create a Bugzilla account, as this is how bugs are reported.
