Wikimedia Technical Engagement
The Technical Engagement team in the Technology department of the Wikimedia Foundation supports the growth and productivity of technical users who engage with Wikimedia's open knowledge as code creators and API consumers. We plan and execute programs that provide computing resources and support to technical audiences who are building software for Wikimedia. We collaborate with teams in the Wikimedia Foundation, the larger Wikimedia movement, and external organizations to promote the use of the Wikimedia platforms via documentation, sample code, libraries, articles, and reference applications. We actively recruit and mentor new technical contributors who will become the next generation of Foundation staff and FLOSS project maintainers.

The team participates in cross-team and cross-departmental programs focused on technical communities directly and indirectly associated with the Wikimedia movement. The outcomes of these programs include:
Sub teams
Cloud Services team
The Cloud Services team (WMCS) is responsible for maintaining and extending the existing Wikimedia Cloud Services computing infrastructure, the Toolforge hosting environment, and many additional supporting technologies used in the Cloud Services environment. The team works in partnership with the larger Wikimedia volunteer community to manage the physical and virtual resources that power the environment and provide technical support to volunteer developers and other Wikimedia Cloud Services users.
See Wikimedia Cloud Services team for additional information.
Developer Advocacy team
The Developer Advocacy team is tasked with supporting the technical communities who use Wikimedia web APIs and software projects to spread and improve free knowledge. They collaborate with teams in the Wikimedia Foundation, the larger Wikimedia movement, and external organizations to promote the use of the Wikimedia platforms via documentation, sample code, libraries, articles, and reference applications. The team also supports programs to actively recruit and mentor new technical contributors who will become the next generation of Foundation staff and FLOSS project maintainers.
