Patrick Reilly was the Site Performance Engineer and Senior Technical Advisor at the Wikimedia Foundation from June 2011 to February 2013.

Patrick is currently working on porting our existing mobile gateway to something a bit closer to our core architecture. He'll be assessing the current list of features for the gateway and will begin work on the next generation of mobile infrastructure for the Wikimedia Foundation. Both of these projects will be the foundation of our mobile efforts going forward and are being actively documented and discussed at m:Mobile Projects.

Patrick comes to this role with a wealth of platform development experience on big web sites. Through his work at OmniTI, Schematic, Media Revolution and numerous others he's really enjoyed building high traffic sites while keeping a focus on the mobile experience.

Patrick continues to be active in the open source community by being the evangelism team leader for the PHP group.
