It is with great pleasure that I welcome Erik Zachte as a part-time
contractor to the Wikimedia Foundation. Erik will start work with us
officially on September 1.
Erik has worked as a Technical Analyst for Air France - KLM for more
than two decades. He is probably most famous in the Wikimedia community
as the developer of "WikiStats" (stats.wikimedia.org
statistics package that reveals data about the growth and editing
patterns in our various wiki projects.
Erik has created many other wonderful tools, featured athttp://infodisiac.com/
. In his part-time role
with the Wikimedia
Foundation, he will continue to maintain and develop code to provide
critical operational metrics about our projects. A key first project,
for example, will be the integration of traffic statistics into the
WikiStats package. These metrics will be key to communications,
fundraising, internal evaluation, and for many other purposes.
We're working in parallel to provide Erik with the support he needs to
do his work, including more regularly provisioned dumps and hardware
to run his scripts.
I'm very pleased that Erik is joining our team, and look forward to
working with him. Please join me in welcoming him. :)
