Key Findings from the Technical Collaboration team[edit]

To be filled in by the Technical Collaboration team

Which were your team's most important research questions?

To be honest, many questions that looked very important a year ago seem less important now. We wanted to map the developer and tech-savvy community and many questions were devoted to that.

To what extent were these questions answered?

We didn't think that such mapping would only work with very high response rates, which we missed. There was also a problem that we did not plan for: answers from volunteer and professional developers were all mixed. We were looking for volunteers' opinions only.

Therefore, we didn't get many reliable answers to our questions.

What additional analyses does your team need?

None based on this CE Insights round.

Which questions surprised your team?

No big surprises.

It was good to confirm that the majority of tech respondents have heard about the Code of Conduct for Wikimedia technical spaces, and many of them were aware of related discussions. The answers related to community friendliness, respect, diversity and being welcoming are... interesting. They depict an overall friendly community but with little variations. Of course, this is a self-reflection and is therefore biased.

The opinions about "The Wikimedia Foundation collaborates well with volunteer developers to build software" were relatively diverse. It would have been interesting to know whether the answers among volunteers and professionals were very different, and the motivations of the respondents with more extreme opinions.

It was interesting to see that developers are mission driven, free software driven, and willing to help editors while learning and helping themselves. The interest in helping readers was lower.

Developers seem to be quite satisfied about the software developed by the Wikimedia Foundation. It would have been interesting to have the same question asked to everybody, to check whether different profiles had different opinions.

How does your team you plan to use the data?

These are the areas where the results of this survey should contribute to better plans:

  • Communication channels to inform about software products and development updates.
  • Types of software news to be promoted.
  • Need for translation glossaries.
  • Involvement of developers in events via online channels, before and during the events.


What survey questions would your team like to ask next time?

A new iteration to decide the new questions was performed during Autumn 2017.
