Customer Testimonials

"Professional Wiki provided Rhizome with competent and timely custom development work. Making use of all the tools that are available to open source developers today, the team built extensions that follow modern software design guidelines, are easy to install, configure, and maintain, and include good documentation and automated testing. Quite unique in the Mediawiki space!"

Dragan Espenschied / Preservation Director, Rhizome
"I had the pleasure to work with Jeroen at Wikimedia Deutschland. Jeroen is one of the most productive and passionate developers that I know. Without Jeroen, Wikidata would not have such a rich range of functions and would be built on a less flexible, lower-quality codebase and architecture. Jeroen has in-depth knowledge and broad experience about clean code and software architectures. I have always appreciated his professional attitude, collegial and reliable manner. He is an absolute win for any team and project!"

"Jeroen is Technical Director at Professional Wiki. Jeroen was working on Semantic MediaWiki and was one of the original developers on Wikibase at Wikimedia Deutschland. I had the pleasure of working with Jeroen for many years and have rarely found someone as dedicated as him towards the quality of the software he is working on."

Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages.

Work with the best Semantic MediaWiki developers in the world. We created large parts of SMW, are its maintainers, and also provide Semantic MediaWiki hosting.

Professional Wiki - Wikibase development

Wikibase

Wikibase is a free, open-source software platform for creating knowledge bases. It powers Wikidata and is primarily developed by Wikimedia Deutschland.

Work with the best Wikibase developers. We created large parts of Wikibase itself, developed various extensions for our clients, and provide Wikibase hosting.

FAQ

Yes, we do. It is up to our clients to decide whether the work we do for them is open-source and which license should be used. In the case of open-source projects, they decide to which degree the software should be made available to the community via documentation and demos.

We cannot transfer our multi-decade experience in the course of one day.
