Google Summer of Code 2013: RTL Support for MediaWiki’s Visual Editor

GSoC 2013

This year I had the distinct privilege of being accepted to the Google Summer of Code summer internship, working for the Wikimedia Foundation. I will be responsible for improving Right-to-Left support in the new Visual Editor.

It’s really fun work, though quite challenging, and the fact my fixes (when and if they pass review) are implemented in the system and are used by Wikipedians all over the world, is quite satisfying.

If you’re interested, you can see the full accepted proposal and my MediaWiki user page, and get all the bi-weekly technical updates as I go in the updates page.

I’ll try to update as I go, too, so if you want to hear more, stick around and stay tuned!
