Google Summer of Code 2010


So, Google Summer of Code 2010 is nearly upon us, the mentoring organisation application period is now open!

Initially been looking at projects I have been involved with before, work on now, or do at the moment, or similar parent orgs.

I’m sad to say that AptitudeCMS, my project last year, is now no more. But its parent org Geeklog is still with us, (AptitudeCMS was supposed to be GeekLog 2).

Geeklog is a PHP CMS, and my main thoughts for going for Geeklog this year is, due to being involved with Aptitude last year, and some of the possible project ideas look interesting and I have some knowledge and expertise on, given that it is a PHP CMS, and they tend to run in to similar problems.

So, just waiting to see which organisations get accepted this year, to fully decide on a project to go for this year. As well as work around my finals for my degree.

So time to break out the Green Tea!

See you in #gsoc on Freenode

So its been a while

GSoC 2009 is over.

Got SVN running (stupid thing I know), so know have committed my work to the AptitudeCMS Repo. Still some mintor bits to work out, but the XML/ATOM output via Zend Feed is working, adding and editing items work, haven’t quite figured out item deletion yet.

Not sure how much time one will have during term time to remain involved but we shall see.

Not tho I have picked up a Job at Stage One, the PCI department of Leeds University.

Spent most of the day hacking the Congo, the Stage1 Lighting Desk, to work with the new network nodes. Rather good fun!

Anyway Freshers week is coming, which means lots of shifts at work, which will be fun but busy, we shall see.

Hopefully I will remember to write my blog some more too!

Zend Framework is Quite Good

So its week whatever it is of GSoC (Google Summer of Code), I’ve lost count, is been tooo busy.

And getting there with AptitudeCMS, not I have my head round it and I have some working code, since its XML Related I was going to use my xml2array function I have that I usually use, but it was suggessted I use Zend Feed to do it and its quite a lot nicer, it does in and out it one easy block of code, in and out I mean for importing a feed out being creating and caching a feed.

On a side note, I have finished some client work (again), hopefully no more damn changes to make on it, and 360gaming.net is coming along with its Windows Live Authentication.

Anywho back to work. 🙂
