I’m an experienced MediaWiki consultant, having written MediaWiki Skins Design and acting as a technical reviewer on the MediaWiki 1.1 Beginners Guide book.

MediaWiki consultants can help you to ensure you get the most from your wiki, whatever its purpose, advise on customising and improving MediaWiki for your own needs and even provide MediaWiki training courses to improve your knowledge and use of MediaWiki.

Typical MediaWiki consulting projects I have undertaken include:

  • Advising on whether MediaWiki is the ideal platform for your project
  • Customising the design and functionality of MediaWiki, including designing and building responsive MediaWiki skins
  • Updating MediaWiki between versions to improve security and features available
  • Ongoing maintenance for MediaWiki clients around the world
  • MediaWiki training courses for wiki administrators

Previous MediaWiki consultancy clients including Central Milton Keynes Town Council and  the University of Applied Sciences, Breda, in the Netherlands.
