Wikimedia Tool Developers is a nascent Wikimedia user group

This a draft report of Wikimedia Tool Developers Group during 2018

Wikimedia Tool Developers is an international cooperative of tool developers, who write code and tools for improving Wikimedia projects and publish it under a free license. We want to improve the Wikimedia projects on the software side, regardless if it is a Bot, a User Script, a Tool which runs on Tool Labs or something else.

During 2018 we tried to involve new members in user group using social media (facebbok) and wikimedia conference

During 2019 we will try to more representative in all wikimedia conference, to organize training workshops for new developers



Below some future activities for the user group

  • Actively increasing the amount of high-quality tool through the daily work of our members.
  • Energizing both existing community members and new talents through awards.
  • Representing the Wikimedia developers community, e.g. at international events like Wikimania.
  • Promoting the idea of publishing high-quality software under free licenses in on- and offline media, through exhibitions, and other means.
  • Enhancing our members' coding skills by teaching each other.
