About me

Hey 🙋🏾‍♂️, I work for the Wikimedia Foundation remotely (from Cameroon), currently under the role of a Senior Software Engineer for the Platform Engineering Team, where my work is primarily on MW Expedition, decoupling & modernizing MediaWiki. See my former roles history. As a volunteer, catch me @ this account.

My work

Currently, I'm a member of the Platform Engineering Team. Formerly, I worked with the Global Data & Insights (GD&I Team) on various projects related to Wikimedia's affiliate data, and building tools to automate & support various data-driven processes, primarily the Wikimedia Affiliates Data Portal & its sisters.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
