Recommended steps for current interns edit

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

  • Join Zulip to keep yourself up to date with the announcements related to the program and opportunities for participating in Wikimedia activities.

  • Add your updates about non-coding tasks (e.g., writing a blog post, joining Zulip, etc.) in the Accepted projects' Updates section above.
  • 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)
