About me

I am a Computer Science graduate from India. I love solving problems and designing an innovative user interface. I enjoy contributing to open source projects, learning and exploring new things. I participate in hackathons actively and have recently won Smart India Hackathon 2017 under the defense section.

I am a sports enthusiast, I play Karate(Kyokushin style) and my Current belt level is Brown2. I get a thrill out of trekking, exploring places and making new contacts.

I am planning to pursue MS in Human–computer interaction - Fall 18 batch.

My work

I have worked on adding User Profile Pages and providing user contribution statistics to the Wiki Education Foundation's Dashboard Project during my Outreachy'16 Winter Internship at Wikimedia Foundation. I am currently a GSoC intern at Wikimedia working on enhancing the usability of the Wiki Education Foundation's Programs and Events Dashboard.

Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.

GSoC 2017 Project: To provide enhanced usability for Wikimedia Programs & Events Dashboard managed by Wiki Education Foundation.[edit]

Synopsis[edit]

Wiki Ed Dashboard is Wiki Education Foundation’s platform for helping people get started with editing Articles on Wikipedia and helping professors run assignments where their students edit Wikipedia. The technology stack includes Ruby on Rails and Javascript.

The Dashboard code runs 2 main projects–

  • The Wiki Education Foundation Dashboard: The use case(scope) for this project is limited to higher education programs in the United States and Canada.
  • Wikimedia Programs & Events Dashboard: For global Wikimedia community to organize all kinds of programs, including edit-a-thons, education programs, and other events.

The use case for the Programs & Events Dashboard project is wide and there are many enhancements to be made to increase the user experience, I'll be working on issues related to this and the overall user testing.

Mentors[edit]

Sage Ross, Product Manager at Wiki Education Foundation and Jonathan Morgan, Design researcher at Wikimedia Foundation.
