Citation needed: Design as a source for building new experiences on Wikipedia

Sep 06, 2020

Wikipedia is nineteen years-old and is still growing, with content being contributed by volunteer editors and read in almost 300 languages worldwide. Rita will share different practices used by the relatively small (some might say scrappy) group of nine designers in the Wikimedia Foundation’s Product team as they create new and improved features to make Wikipedia a more inclusive place to access free knowledge for the next generation of users.
