Vision StatementEdit

Becoming the essential infrastructure of Free Knowledge requires a diverse and equitable technical contributor community (staff and volunteers alike). To reduce barriers to entry and to enable faster and easier development, we must provide a modern and complete engineering productivity ecosystem. Everything from code-review and code health, to local development and testing, from proof of concept creation to production deployment and monitoring.

Come join us at the Wikimedia Technical Conference 2019 to help address all of the issues — large and small — that will make all parts of our engineers' lives happier, healthier, and more productive.
