Coolest Tool Award
Wiki communities around the globe have diverse use cases and technical needs. Volunteer developers are often the first to find and address those use cases. They experiment with new ideas, build local and global solutions and bridge workflow gaps in our software.
There are incredibly many great tools out there.
It’s time to celebrate this!
Coolest Tool Award 2019
The first ever Coolest Tool Award ceremony took place during Wikimania 2019, as part of the Wikimania program. We have recognized some of the greatest tools in a variety of categories: Experience, Tiny, Impact, Reusable, Editor, Developer, Mobile, Newcomer, Outreach, Eggbeater (= tools that have been around for a long time).
The group will vary from year to year to minimize bias. Folks who are interested in organizing the Coolest Tool Award 2020 are invited to reach out to us. :-)
