Wikimedia's technical community participates in several outreach programs. This helps us bring in new contributors to our technical projects, spanning our community needs, spreading knowledge about our movement to bigger and diverse audiences, and give budding contributors an opportunity to mentor newcomers.
Wikimedia Foundation's Developer Advocacy team coordinates participation in these outreach programs.
To work on Wikimedia software projects outside of an outreach program, see New Developers.
For ways to contribute to Wikimedia apart from software development, see How to contribute.
