User:Pavithraes/Season of Docs - Project report
The final project report for my Season of Docs 2019 project with The Wikimedia Foundation: Improve documentation for Wikimedia’s technical documentarians and videographers.
Originally, this project aimed to improve the on-wiki documentation, guidelines and resources for technical writers and videographers across Wikimedia projects.
The project plan was later changed to improve Toolforge and Cloud VPS technical documentation instead of documentation for videographers.
Mentors: Sarah Rodlund, Srishti Sethi
