Abstract[edit source]

Wikimedia Sverige is experimenting with the development of a Thematic hub for content partnerships in the Wikimedia movement. One area of experimentation is: how can we support software development of strategically important tools used in content partnerships? This group discussion invites anyone who builds and uses such tools (Wikimedia tool developers, Wikimedia affiliates and end users) to talk about a plan of action for collaborative work on sustainable partnership software in the upcoming years. What is important to everyone involved, and what do we need to make this work?

Learning Outcomes[edit source]

Participants and audience will:

  • be aware of efforts happening to improve the sustainability of content partnership software in the Wikimedia movement
  • learn more about who is working on this topic, and will have a better understanding of motivations and needs
  • communicate their first ideas, feedback, do's and don'ts on this topic
  • know who to approach with questions, ideas and feedback in this area in the future
