Hello and welcome to the Technical Advice IRC Meeting - the weekly support meeting for volunteer developers on #wikimedia-techconnect!

The meeting takes place every Wednesday from 4 to 5 pm UTC.

Every Wednesday, two full-time developers are available to help you with all your questions about Mediawiki, gadgets, tools and more! This can be anything from "how to get started" over "who would be the best contact for X" to specific questions on your project.

We will try to help you as good as we can.

All questions are welcome! If you know already what you would like to discuss or ask, please add your topic to the next meeting, so that we can prepare the meeting or ask an expert for your issue to join if needed. Of course it is always possible to check in spontaneously!

Next meeting on Wednesday, March 27 2019, 4 pm UTC[edit]

We love goats.
We love cats, too.

Additionally, if there's time left: setting ref="noopener" on OOUI buttons when using target="_blank" for an external domain. It's recommended on Wikimedia Security Team/Security reviews/What we are looking for, but doesn't seem possible.
