Hello, I just had a call with
Mikael Wiberg, Professor, Head of Department
Department of Informatics, Umeå university, Sweden
He is now a new member of this list. Hej!
They want to get involved in different types of Wikimedia contributions.
One area of high interest among their students is interaction design.
We could start with a small and quite informal collaboration. From time
to time people come here asking for feedback or help about a UX problem,
a new workflow, some gadget needing some UX love... These students could
simply join the list and get involved in the discussions, bringing
feedback and ideas.
From there many progressive paths are possible:
* Start working on "design" AND "easy" bugs:
* Help kicking the https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/UX_review_queue
* Get involved in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Micro_Design_Improvements
And probably more, but I think it's important to go for first things
first, and start with simple feedback to requests made to this list.
Welcome Mikael, we hope you bring more participation to this list and we
are looking forward to the first results.
Technical Contributor Coordinator @ Wikimedia Foundation
