Projects I work on
Apart from the session I attended and sometimes co lead, i work with others wikimedians to develop an interactive documentation tool for GLAM Uploads.
The tool has been deployed on toolforge and available at: Mortar tool
Attending Wikimania 2019 had been a great experience and a great opportunity to meet others wikimedians from all over the world, sharing experiences and discovering new projects.
Meeting and talking with Wikimedia foundations managers and particularly with its executive director Katherine had been a really great moment.
