Hi Uzma, wonderful to have you with us.

We had a HOT mapathon in Bangalore today to get volunteers together and
teach them how to contribute. We have documented most of our instructions
in a very compact document:

Please see if you find this useful. Once you have some experience you can
organize and lead a mapathon at your campus.

Please let us know if you require any help.
