Today my MediaWiki.org user page is one year old – I created the first version on July 20, 2009. With my SVN account also approaching it’s first birthday, I can now say I’m doing MediaWiki development for a year. A lot has happened in this year.
I created the Maps and Semantic Maps extensions, and have continues releasing big and small updates the whole year long. At the end of 2009 I created the Validator extension to facilitate parameter handling in Maps and Semantic Maps. In early 2010 I was contracted by the Wikimedia Foundation to create the Storyboard extension, and by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to do work on Semantic MediaWiki. In May 2010 I started working on my Google Summer of Code 2010 project to create an extension management platform for MediaWiki. In between all these things I made various contributions to other extensions, including Semantic Forms, Semantic Internal Objects, Page Object Model, Semantic Compound Queries, Semantic Result Formats and Approved Revisions.
Next to all the code I created and released, I also attended several events and gave a number of presentations. These events include SMWCamp 2009 in Karlsruhe, the Berlin developers workshop in April and Wikimania 2010 in Gdansk.
I’m currently all time MediaWiki comitter #18, with 1080 commits. Looking forward to all the awesome stuff I can do in the coming year 🙂
