Attending Wikimania 2010

I will be attending  Wikimania 2010,  Gdansk, Poland.  This annual international conference of the Wikimedia community is from July 9 to July 11.

I will be presenting wik2cd, the tool I wrote for Malayalam wikipedia version 1.0 there in a joint workshop with wikipedia offline developers.  I will be joining with Manuel Schneider,  Shiju Alex, Martin Walker in the workshop titled: Creating offline version of Wiki content – Solutions and Challenges. Apart from this, I will be meeting pediapress team, the team behind wikipedia’s latest PDF/Book export feature. There are some issues in this tool for working with Indic languages, mainly because of the PDF rendering engine not capable of rendering complex scripts.

Thanks to Wikimedia foundation for granting me a scholarship to cover travel expenses.
