As I have previously blogged I am doing an internship with Wikimedia Labs for FOSS OPW. At the end of the two weeks I have learned many things from my internship. The first challenge I got is learning Semantic Form Extension.
According to my plan the first two weeks of my internship was dedicated to having the getting started documentation redesigned and we are still discussing about changes done. As soon as the things get decided we hope to get it all completed and move to the next phase.
Experience you get working with open source community is altogether a different one. You can get help via IRC channels and mailing list and every one is willing to help if you follow the proper etiquette.
