I met lots of people from different open source organisation like Mozilla, KDE, Gnome etcetera. I also met lots of people from Singapore JS and Python Community. I also met Kartik Mistry from WMF.
Everyone was able to create gadget for counting edits like this. Unfortunately its more then one month pass so I could not able to find the link of people's creation because mediawiki does provide data for more then 30 days in recent changes. Some participants created this thing using console without creating separate page. This workshop is just for explaining concept of MediaWiki Gadgets not expert level workshop. So creation of attendees were not so significant.
After the hands-on session, I was been approached by few attendies to know the contribution-process and criteria in Wikipedia and also they wanted some more information regarding to this. I appreciated their inquiry by exhibiting how to fill bug, acquainted with IRC channels and phabricators, how to submit patch and so on.
Meeting with Josh Lim and many other Wikimedians, discussing about the technology, community management and Wikimania, which anticipates what's to come(our super future), was in reality an intensive experience.
This time they improved in planning and management stuff and yeah its fun and great learning experience in Singapore in FOSSASIA 2015.
