There have been many discussions about the difficulty of developing some competence in working on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. There are a range of things one must learn, from the technicalities of wiki code and software use, to solid research skills, to a cultural understanding of how our communities operate.

Some people learn best by taking on small tasks with a list of clear instructions, and will be more inclined or able to learn after they have notched a few small successes.

This page is intended to collect suggestions and instructions for how to perform basic tasks; essentially a "beginner's cookbook" for Wikimedia projects.
