The metakgp wiki is an open repository of community knowledge about IIT Kharagpur that anyone can edit. We hang out on Slack, come by and say hi.

Infrastructure[edit source]

{{#invoke:further|further}} The metakgp wiki is running on a single Digital Ocean droplet with 1 GB RAM, a 30 GB SSD, and a single CPU.

History[edit source]

Metakgp was started by Vivek Aithal and Vikrant Varma at IIT Kharagpur in 2014. After a period of inactivity, it was revived in 2015 with the help of Harsh Gupta and Vivek Rai.
