Jump to navigation Jump to search


Since 2020, the Performance Team has been giving the Web Perf Hero award to individuals who have gone above and beyond to improve the performance of Wikimedia sites. It's awarded in the form of a Phabricator badge.

Here are past recipients and why they've been given the Web Perf Hero award. Beyond specific recent projects that led to the award, they've all demonstrated repeated care, focus and discipline around performance.

Giuseppe Lavagetto[edit]

Giuseppe's in-depth blog post about Envoy and PHP and all the underlying work that he did shows that he's willing to go the extra mile to improve the performance of our systems.

Nick Ray[edit]

Nick's in-depth analysis of the DOM order impact on performance was excellent and shows that how much work he does to ensure that he's building performant features.

Jon Robson[edit]

We hereby recognise the excellence of Jon's work converting image lazy loading to use IntersectionObserver, one of many projects he had the initiative of starting to improve the performance of our sites.
