2021:Submissions/How to find tools to improve your workflows

From Wikimania


Speakers[edit | edit source]

Bryan Davis, Principal Software Engineer, Wikimedia Foundation

Abstract[edit | edit source]

There is a rich ecosystem of "tools" built by volunteers, affiliates, and Foundation staff to help fill in workflow gaps in the Wikimedia movement. There are thousands of bots, user scripts, web services, gadgets, desktop apps, and phone apps out there. Maybe even one that makes the exact thing you are trying to do easier (or possible). But how do you find them? And if you find one, how do you know if it will still be working a month or a year from now?

Learn more about the Toolhub tools catalog. Folks should leave the session with a general understanding of the historic gaps in tool discovery that Toolhub is trying to fill today, and some of the ideas that are being worked on to make it even more useful in the future.
