Santosh Shingare is Bangalore-based Wikimedian who organised the hack-a-thon WCI2016. Santosh had previously served as an organiser of the 2011 WikiConference, and has run hackathons annually since then. Santosh's primary motivation for holding such events is learning; He enjoys collaborating with other Wikimedians and sharing technical skills. Santosh highlights that the projects grew out of advance communication. To identify problems and generate ideas, the hackathon organising team posted a survey ahead of the event. Requests from various language communities, including Hindi, Tamil, Punjabi, and Malayalam, drove several of the projects. Santosh is not a prolific Wikipedia writer or editor, but rather sees value in his ability to communicate among Wikimedians who seek features from various language communities, including his native Marathi and other Indic languages in which he has varying degrees of fluency.
