Endorsements
I co-mentored Rahul for Google Summer of Code 2013 on PronunciationRecording. Although the project has not been completed, he completed the initial functionality, recording a word and uploading it to the current wiki with an appropriate template. Rahul also improved his programming skills over the summer, especially in JavaScript. -Superm401

Proposed ParticipationEdit

I am Rahul Maliakkal, from India. I got the opportunity to intern at Wikimedia Foundation as a part of Google Summer of Code 2013. I have been invited to present a talk on the extension i.e Pronunciation Recording Tool which I developed during the course of my internship. This is the first time I will be taking part in an international conference and I am looking forward to it. I have a 25 minutes session, 15 mins in which I will be delivering the talk and the remaining 10 mins are for Q/A's. I also plan on giving a demo of my work on my laptop so that the audience gets a better idea about the project.

Goal and Expected ImpactEdit

In FOSSASIA 2014, people from different organizations will be present, my primary goal will be to enhance user based contributions to Wikimedia Foundation. I also would like more people to enhance my extension idea and also help us maintaining it. FOSSASIA would be an excellent platform to share ideas and also get reviews from the large community so that in future we can try and incorporate those changes into this extension.
