Recommended steps for current internsEdit
Here are some recommended steps for current interns before the internship period kick-off:

- Setup your MediaWiki user page, link it with your name in the accepted projects section above and keep it up to date with your project work and reports. (e.g., User:Martyav, User:Amrit_sreekumar)
