Introducing the Cloud Services Team: What we do, and how we can help you (blog post)

Bryan Davis
A blog post about the Wikimedia Cloud Services team and the products
they help maintain is live on the Wikimedia blog:
<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/09/11/introducing-wikimedia-cloud-services/>

The post talks a bit about why we formed the Wikimedia Cloud Services
team and what the purpose of the product rebranding we have been
working on is. It also gives a shout out to a very small number of the
Toolforge tools and Cloud VPS projects that the Wikimedia technical
community make. I wish I could have named them all, but there are just
too many!

As a member of the blog/comms team, we would love to highlight more of the
Toolforge tools/Cloud VPS projects.

We've been talking about featuring a "Tool of the Month" on the Wikipedia
blog, both to get to know the tool and its creator.

We're also very interested in humanizing and categorizing tools for end
users. For example:

 "Tools used on Enwiki"
"Tools that wikidata loves"
"Tools to use if you're a photographer."

etc.

Would anyone be interested in helping with these efforts? We did something
similar at my previous job [1] and many people found the tools and used
them based on surfacing them based on these categories.
