On March 17, there was a wikipedia hackathon at ThoughtWorks, Chennai.
I participated that event.
There was around 20 programmers joined together to work on building some interesting applications using wikipedia.
We picked up the ideas form the link.
I picked up an idea of creating an application to record audio for adding voices to the tamil wiktionary site.
In this page, there is an audio file on how to spell the word ‘tiny’
Not all the words in the tamil wiktionary has the audio files.
I wrote an application to make this process easier. It will show you a word, record it and upload it to commons.
get the source code at
see a demo screencast on the application here:
There are some 13 applications developed and all participants showed their demo on the same day.
Thanks for yuvipanda and srikanth for organising a nice event.
