TriangleArrow-Left.svgQ3 Wikimedia Technology Goals, FY2018–19, Q4 (April - June 2019) Q1TriangleArrow-Right.svg

IntroductionEdit

The Technology Department has a number of annual goals in support of the Wikimedia Foundation's Annual Plan; this work is detailed in the Annual Plan. Our remaining work falls into four broad areas—foundational, sustaining, supporting our technical community, and supporting the overall community health.

All Technology programs fall under the primary goal of Knowledge as a Service/Foundational Strength - evolve our systems and structures, with the exception of TEC5: Scoring Platform and TEC9: Address Knowledge Gaps which fall under the primary goal of Knowledge Equity - grow new contributors and content.
