Wikimedia CH/Tech boost
Wikimedia CH sometime organizes a Tech Boost during which a project will be boosted with development support.
During a Tech Boost, at least one IT staff member will be available in this channel:
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:
|Boostable project||Description and goals||Notes|
|Wikimini||We are inside a migration of a wiki farm called Wikimini. We will host it in the Wikimedia CH Infrastructure.
|WMCH Contributors annual report||During this boost we can improve the WMCH contributors annual report (updating its criteria, data collection methods, improving execution time, simplify its maintenance, writing documentation - whatever you think should be prioritized).
|Community technical support||During this boost we will invest some development for community templates and Scribunto Lua modules (introducing new functionalities, fixing bugs, improving documentation - whatever you think should be prioritized).
|WMCH Matomo||During this boost Wikimedia CH can contribute in making reports with their dedicated Matomo instance. We can analyze web traffic on some websites and some interesting projects adopting very strange criteria, create new variables, check global performances, monitor internal goals, etc.
|WMCH Cronos||During this boost Wikimedia CH will contribute in developing our "definitive wiki-calendar", a wiki-friendly calendar.
|Minipedia||During this boost Wikimedia CH will contribute in developing Minipedia: a prototype to access simplified and reduced ("mini") versions of Wikipedia articles.
Try Minipedia's concept online.
|WMCH Grant||We have implemented some automation in the Wikimedia CH Grant apply page with some margin of improvement involved in this boost.
|WMCH Tech Infrastructure||During this boost we will invest on new powerful tools for Wikimedia CH members or the Wikimedia community or we will just maintain Wikimedia CH components up 'n' running with latest security patches.
This takes in consideration documentation, release of our configurations to the community, installation of new features, hardening, etc.
