Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware application as a mentoring organization


See the page GSOC 2013 Application Form to see what will be sent in.

To participate as a student

  • Explore Tiki.
    • Find out what Tiki is about. Discover its applications. Visit tiki.org and explore.
    • Check out the 3 rules which a member of Tiki community is expected to abide by: http://dev.tiki.org/3+Rules
    • Make yourself comfortable with the Tiki code base. Fix a few bugs/implement feature requests: http://dev.tiki.org/Development
      • Submitting patches is a great way to let us know that you're understanding the code base and that you're serious about the project.
  • Find a project. Visit the ideas page linked above.
  • Discuss the project. Join the Tiki dev mailing list and hang out on irc channels.

  • Draft and discuss your proposal. Submit you application much before the deadline. Avoid last minute hassles.

    • Actual applications can be sent to gsoc (AT) tiki.org but note that Google requires that official applications be done through their system at their specified timeline. But it is always to have something drafted in advance.

Student proposals should include the following:

  • Name and e-mail
  • Which project do you wish to work on? See http://dev.tiki.org/GSOC+Ideas+2013
  • Detailed description of how you intend to achieve the goals of the project you selected, e.g. what you intend to do, your suggested implementation, and a list of quantifiable results, a suggested project schedule?
  • Availability: How many hours per week can you spend working on this? What other obligations do you have this summer?
  • Bio: Who are you? What makes you the best person to work on this project?
  • Do you have a preferred/suggested mentor for your project?
  • Where do you live? (we'll try to match you with a mentor in a compatible timezone, or in the same city, if possible.)
  • Have you analyzed the field? Please provide a list of 3 (or more) similar and/or related existing applications (free source or commercial) and your thoughts on these. (min 300 words on each)
  • Are you comfortable with the 3 Rules of the community and the fact that you'll be committing directly to the core of Tiki?
  • Have you put any code or writing that you've authored online? If so, please provide links.
  • What other question(s) should we have asked you?

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
