Wikimedia CH sometime organizes a Tech Boost during which a project will be boosted with development support.

About[edit]

During a Tech Boost, at least one IT staff member will be available in this channel:

#wmch-infrastructureconnect

During these meetings you can meet one of these developers and system administrators, have a Jitsi Meeting conference with them, discover what they do, what are the current issues, share your ideas about a development, report bugs, leave feedback etc.

Some known Wikimedia CH projects that may be involved in these boosts:
