The Technical Collaboration team proposes the creation of a developer support channel focusing on newcomers, as part of our Onboarding New Developer program. We are proposing to create a site based on Discourse (starting with a pilot in discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org) and to point the many existing scattered channels there.
This is an initial proposal for a pilot. If the pilot is successful, we will move it production. For that to happen we still need to sync well with Wikimedia Cloud Services, Operations and the Wikimedia technical community.
Please check the plan and share your feedback.
