Mahuton POSSOUPE (Q62353294)

Software Dev & E-commerce specialist

About me

I'm a volunteer from Bénin; I live most of the time in France.

I start editing Wikipedia in 2015 and do some works on Mediawiki as volunteer developer since 2018.

Technical works

  • As volunteer developer I work on fixing bugs on mediawiki core, Mediawiki extensions and on Pywikibot. I also develop some tools. Here are some of my technical contributions.
  • In 2018, I have been cited in Production Excellence for having helped fixed a 6-month bug preventing the normal functioning of the "Thanks extension".
  • The same year, I participated in the gadgets maintenance project on French Wikipedia and helped rewrite and optimize the source code of some gadgets

Community building and projects management

  • I also co-lead Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth and the Francophone month of contribution projects in Bénin.


Wiki Conferences

I had the opportunity to meet many wiki friends and learn from the projects they are working on, both technical and non.
