Mediawiki is definitely in the top 5 of web applications and platforms that I love to develop on. If you are unfamiliar with the name Mediawiki, you may be a little bit more knowledgeable about Wikipedia, Mediawiki’s largest user.
Mediawiki is an open source program that allows you to create a Wiki website that looks and functions the exact same way as Wikipedia does. The developer community is extremely strong and additional functionality and customization is easy to achieve. Custom Themes however are harder to come by.
That is where I can help! I have been designing and programming Mediawiki platforms for the past five years. Though the majority of my projects with Wiki have been for internal intranets, knowledge base projects etc… some of the clients that I have worked with have proven to be smashing success stories in the public forum.
ThePlantEncyclopedia.org is one of my favorite websites, this is the #1 resource for plant enthusiasts online. Housing well over 300,000 different pages about plants it has drawn a lot of attention. Harvard Universality will be utilizing this project!
Another is Gardenology.org, again a plant related Wiki. This project has been featured on The Discovery Channel and The San Jose Observer Newspaper.
In addition to skinning I also offer installation, setup, exporting, data services, semantic forms, semantic mediawiki installation, SocialProfile integration and customization of extensions, scripts and templates.
You can check out these and other Wikis that I have designed and developed functionality for on my Portfolio.
