Grace Hopper Celebration Codeathon for Humanity

The Codeathon at GHC2010 is intended to introduce participants to rapid development of FOSS applications in a collective coding setting.

Suggested Codeathon Projects

CAP: Common Alerting Protocol

  • Receive CAP messages from an external CAP source.
  • Provide a form for originating CAP messages.
  • Send CAP messages to subscribers, retrying on failure.
  • Write a Facebook app to receive CAP messages and post them on one's wall.

GIS: Mapping Improvements

SAARAA: Situational Awareness and Rapid Assessment Application

This was started as an Android app at RHoK #3. That version uploaded data to a very simple Heroku back end.

As a follow-on to that project, allow the app to send to an Eden back end.

  • Add an appropriate model.
  • Handle receiving uploaded messages from non-logged in users -- provide a code they can use to log in later.
  • Display the messages by category and time.
  • Allow commenting on the messages (e.g. adding updates about handling the messages).
  • Allow sending a message back.
Note: See TracWiki for help on using the wiki.
