Coolest Tool Award 2019: Call for Nominations

Birgit Mueller
Dear all,



we’re really happy to announce the first ever Coolest Tool Award
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Coolest_Tool_Award>!



Tools play an essential role at Wikimedia, and so do the many volunteer
developers who experiment with new ideas, develop & maintain local & global
solutions and bridge workflow gaps for the Wikimedia communities.



There are incredible many great tools out there. It’s time to celebrate
this & to make the work volunteer developers do more visible to everyone :-)



The Coolest Tool Award ceremony will take place at Wikimania, as part of
the official program:

https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2019:Technology_outreach_%26_innovation/Coolest_Tool_Award_2019



The award is organized & selected by this year's Coolest Tool Academy. The
plan is to award the greatest tools in a variety of categories: For
example: “best Commons tool” to recognize the value of a tool for a
specific project, or “best newcomer” to award the work of a fairly new
developer.



As no one can possibly know all the cool tools out there, we’re looking for
some help & inspiration: Please point us to the tools that you think are
great - out of any reason you can think of!



Please use this form:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Ip5Sb_CDvgO6IN2f51V3WjkVYU9Sa-nneX5PoY0sjoo/viewform

to recommend tools by July 29, 2019.

You can nominate as many tools as you want by filling out the form multiple
times.



This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject
it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling,
see the survey privacy statement:
https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Coolest_Tool_Award_2019_Survey_Privacy_Statement



Thank you very much for your ideas & recommendation(s)!



We will continue to spread the word over the next 1-2 days, but if you get
the chance, please feel welcome to share this information with others too!



If you have any questions, please contact us at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Coolest_Tool_Award.



Thanks :-)

Birgit, for the Coolest Tool Academy 2019

To clarify, does this mean tool in the sense of "tool"server? (Aka coolest
thing hosted using cloud services) or is it more general including gadgets,
standalone apps or any other piece of technology in the wikimedia ecosystem
that's "cool"?

Any Wikimedia related software is eligible. Gadgets, Lua modules, user
scripts, bots no matter where they normally run, web tools no matter
where they are hosted, desktop tools, mobile apps, ...

We have a huge ecosystem of things that people build and use to make
working on the Wikimedia projects easier and the Coolest Tool Academy
wants to hear about all of them. You could honestly even nominate your
favorite GNU Linux distribution if you can explain how it makes life
as a Wikimedian better.
