About me

I am Gergő Tisza, a developer and Wikimedian from Hungary. I've been involved with the movement since 2004, as an editor, administrator, tool developer, translator and chapter member. Since 2013 I have been working for the Wikimedia Foundation and living in San Francisco. For more information, see my LinkedIn profile.

My work

I am a member of the Foundation's MediaWiki Platform Team. Previously I have worked in the old Multimedia team, the Product Infrastructure team and the Growth team.

Projects I have worked on in the past include CommonsMetadata, Media Viewer UploadWizard, OAuth, SessionManager and AuthManager, Multi-Content Revisions, ReadingLists, the Parsoid PHP port, GrowthExperiments and CentralAuth. I have been marginally involved with MediaWiki-Vagrant, ORES, TemplateStyles, PageViewInfo and Structured data on Commons as well.

Some personal projects I am sometimes working on: Wikispore, Matrix, security (e.g. separating JS editing permissions), Sentry and the Developer Wishlist.

Some thoughts on strategy: We need a wikiproject incubator to enable innovation. (2017 developer summit position statement), Reliable, accessible information on life-altering topics (2015 Reading department strategy).

You can see what I am doing at the moment on Phabricator (profile, team board, personal board) and Gerrit.

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.
