Short Profile (including past involvement in Wikimedia activities in not more than 100 words)
I have been editing on kn.wiki and contributing to commons since last one year actively. I have also participated in many of the Kannada as well as Bangalore monthly wiki meetups. I have been participating in Academies out reach programs as well as the recent event WLM2012 covering most of the monuments in and around Bangalore, Karnataka. I have been finding some niche areas around Kannada Wikipedia and Wiktionary projects where in I could help the existing admins and special interest group through my development skills. I could attend DevCamp 2012 conducted at IIMB, Bangalore and got a chance to introduce myself to the area of PyWiktionary modules, Andriod Development and other Wikimedia projects. Here I got a chance to develop customized modules to import words and meanings via python or other scripts. Since we have a wonderful set of Frequently used terms in Kannada standardized under fuleproject.org recently by a group of enthusiasts, these new modules will be useful in handy. Also got a chance to develop a prototype for the simple mobile application to manage Wiki Events which is still in the inception stages. I have been the in-charge of upcoming Wiki Women's worshop in Bangalore happeninng on 9th of March, 2012.
