Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?

This was my first Wikimania. Though I got the scholarship for the first time in 2017 and, it was very exciting because finally, I could meet people I'm working with. We were two from Bangladesh, but unfortunately, both of us got rejected by the Canadian embassy. After that this year 6 of us got the scholarship from Bangladesh, and till the largest number of participants from our country.

During the whole conference, I was interested in outreach, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Earth and some technical related sessions, like Wikidata tools. After got back from Wikimania, I've already started to implement those experience in our homewikis, like Wikidata:Wikiproject Bangladesh. During the Wikimania, I actively shared my experience through social media like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I took photos from several sessions and published on Wikimedia Bangladesh's official Twitter & Facebook pages.

And the last thing I have to say: Thanks to Wikimania, for all the experiences!

Here are some sessions and meetings I've attended during Wikimania:

Also, during the conference we able to publish news in Bangladesh's national daily, and posted them in WMBD & BNWP's official Twitter & Facebook pages.:

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).
  • Started Wikiproject Bangladesh and discuss more with some fellow Wikimedians from country and abroad.
  • We discussed planning for ESEAP conference 2019 and proposal for Wikimedia SAARC 2020 conference in Bangladesh.
  • Meet and learn with Kiwix people and share plan how Bengali Wikipedia included to this project.


During the Wikimania, I met, talked and spent times with some wonderful people; learned a lot and shared some. I am thankful to themselves.
