Participating in GSoC 2020
Due to lack of time/willingess to work 24/7 on our projects, in order to further develop them I am thinking if we could participate as mentor organization in GSoC 2020.
The Google Summer of Code is a program from Google where students participate in the development of a piece of Open Source software. I think we could participate with the following 3 projects:
An Html/Css theme used for admin panel. Because many FOSS Apps may need a complete theme for their internal pages, and many Free themes lack offering a complete solution (because they are just "promoters" for paid themes) so makinh a complete theme with all the required components it may give a solution for many FOSS Apps.
2. Docker moodle and docker moodle compose:
That project aims to offer a full containarized solution for moodle. Moodle does not have oficial images for docker. There are many solutions but in our case the goal is to offer minimal and easy to extends images for custom moodle setups with the required plugins, focusing on moodle modders.
- Member app https://github.com/ellakcy/member_app A symfony PHP application offering subscription management for EllakCy's members. Right now is frozen on time, but I am thinking to unfreeze it and with aid from GSoC allowing having a solution for subscription management and easy legal reporting to authorities for non-profit orgs (σωματεία) like ours.
So far I maintain only the docker moodle images. The admin theme and the member app have their development frozen. But with aid of GSoC we could unfreeze them and give them a dev boost and actually that the only goal that I have.
So I would love to discuss:
a. Are we willing to do that?
b. Can we be ready for that? (I mean having a communication infrastructure, web channel ready for it, enough mentors etc etc)
