User page Discussion
Welcome to my user page! Here you can see all my tools available in Wikimedia Labs with a brief description about them. I like to develop statistics/visualization tools and recommendation systems, both to analyse and help others to find tasks to do.
I mostly use Python, a bit of PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML+CSS and publish the code with open-source licenses. If you find any bug or want to send me a suggestion, please use the talk page. I have a user page in English Wikipedia too.
