Re: Congratulations to accepted candidates for Google Summer of Code 2017 & Outreachy Round 14

SIDDHARTHA SARKAR
Hello everyone,

   I am Siddhartha Sarkar. Presently I am an MS student in Computer Science
in the Indian Institute of Technology at Delhi.

   It's a great pleasure to be accepted in GSoC 2017. Moreover being part
of the Wikimedia community which is committed to the spread of knowledge in
numerous natural languages is an added honour. I am grateful to the
community for giving me this opportunity to make an impact. I will try to
do justice to the faith the community has kept on me by carrying out my
project in a very efficient way.

A summary of the project "Single Image Batch Upload" that I will be doing
this summer is below.

The project aims to create a tool that uploads images from a GLAM to
Wikimedia Commons with the following objectives.

   - To minimize the number of steps.
   - To make the process of uploading easier for the non-technical users by
   mapping GLAM's metadata to the Commons metadata automatically.
   - To enable the user to choose a set of relevant images from a GLAM site
   and upload them thus avoiding uploading of unnecessary images and
   minimizing processing time.

We create a Flask app that uses OAuth for authenticating the Commons user.
After the login the app allows the user to choose a set of images from a
desired GLAM and upload them in batch to Commons. In addition we would like
to do some metadata mapping for some of the GLAMs so that end user doesn't
have to worry about entering image details like creator, licenses etc. In
summary we intend to provide a tool to the users to upload images from a
GLAM to Wikimedia Commons most efficiently.

Thanks and regards
Siddhartha

Harjot Bhatia
In reply to this post by Srishti Sethi
Hey,

I'm Harjot Singh, currently pursuing Bachelors in Information technology.
I've been part of the organisation since 2015 and it has been a learning
experience.
I'm really excited to be part of the program and work on the project.

Project Title : Upgrading Quiz extension and adding data storage feature

Quiz extension is currently used for numerous projects, but has numerous
bugs and lacks features of saving data.
The aim of the project is to upgrade quiz extension to MediaWiki standards
while adding Data storage feature.

The following are the deliverables:

- Resolving known bugs

- Updating legacy code

- Adding Data storage feature

- Updating Documentation


Thanks and Regards,
Harjot Singh

Sonali Gupta
In reply to this post by Srishti Sethi
Hello,

I am Sonali Gupta. I am from India, currently pursuing a bachelor's
degree in Computer Science. I will be graduating in May, 2018.
I am immensely happy to be a part of Wikimedia community as an Outreachy
intern. I will be writing documentation on how to create a Zotero
translator. These translators are used by Citoid, a service to generate
citation data. By the end of this project, I hope everyone will find it
easy to write translators for the sites they wish, by making use of the
documentation that will be prepared. It will be available on
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Citoid/Creating_Zotero_translators
I am super excited to work and learn new stuff this summer. I want to
especially thank Marielle Volz and Srishti Sethi for giving me this
opportunity and putting faith in me. I hope to be an asset to the team.

Keerthana S
I am Keerthana from India, pursuing B.Tech in Engineering Physics from IIT
Madras. I am gonna be working on Wiki Edu dashboard by WikiEducation
Foundation. My project during the summer will be to add a feature to give
some automatic feedback on the articles being edited by the dashboard users
using the ML based data on the articles. This can especially help beginner
Wikipedia editors to have not so bad experience on their first Wikipedia
article. And using the same data it is possible to build a feature that can
help editors find an article to which they can contribute the best to based
on their previous Wikipedia editing experience. My mentors for the project
are Sage Ross and Jonathan Morgan

(re-sent; apologies if this appears twice)

It seems they've added additional requirements since 2015.

My name is Alexander Jones. I edit as happy5214 on several wikis,
primarily enwiki and Wikidata. I hail, though not originally, from San
Antonio, Texas, also known as The Alamo City. I have received an associate
degree in CS from my local community college, and I am currently pursuing a
bachelor's degree in CS, with a minor in math, from UTSA.

This year, I am adding Thanks support to Pywikibot. I have previous
experience with Pywikibot, as I added Flow support to Pywikibot during
GSoC 2015. With this project, I will be adding API calls for thanking
users, integrating them with the existing class structure, and writing
scripts to create aggregate lists of frequent thankers.

Good luck to everyone, and I'll be busy catching up this week.

Alexander
