I second this sentiment. :)  People who want to understand what the
Wikimedia Foundation operations staff does might like a blog post from
February.[0]  Ops is under "Technical Operations" in "Engineering and
Product Development" on the staff page[1] in case you want to recognize
them and buy them refreshing beverages at Wikimania. :)

I also specifically thank the volunteers who improve Wikimedia's
infrastructure.  For instance, if you look at the changes being
suggested to our system administration-related code,[2] you'll see lots
of names in there -- for instance, AzaToth, Alex Monk, Petr Bena, Sanja
pavlovic, Physikerwelt, liangent, Hazard-SJ, TTO (This, that and the
other), Tzafrir Cohen, Rillke, Jeremyb, Platonides, Nemo bis, Vogone,
odder, Lupo, and more -- plus engineers from Wikimedia Germany and
Wikimedia Foundation.  As of right now there are at least 250 changes
merged into the operations/puppet repository from people who don't work
at WMF.[3]  Volunteers have also been key in building, testing,
supporting, and documenting new parts of Wikimedia's infrastructure,
such as Tool Labs and the beta cluster.[4][5][6]

Thanks to all the people who have built and maintained infrastructure
for the Wikimedia movement over the past twelve-plus years, no matter
where you worked.
