Codeathon Projects

Since we expect GHC2010 Codeathon participants to reflect diverse skills and expertise, we have identified a range of projects. Regardless of the amount of coding needed, all of these are useful!

Projects that do not involve programming

Provide feedback on an existing Eden module

Help out with a current relief effort

Improve installation procedures

  • Step-by-step documentation -- we have been concentrating on Windows & Debian/Ubuntu so other distros are poorly-documented.

Projects for beginning coders, or those just starting with Python or web services

Fix bugs

Polish existing modules

  • Fix UI issues
  • Add features

SysAdmin tasks

Projects for more experienced coders

Some things to keep in mind when planning new modules or major features:

  • Consider what other FOSS tools exist, that could be installed alongside Eden.
  • Look at tools and libraries already in use in Eden, e.g. jQuery and ExtJS for UI work.
  • Tweet or SMS parsing -- allow users to provide info via tweets or SMS messages
  • Job Jar -- manage tasks performed on the site, e.g. data entry
    • Assign tasks to users or let users select tasks.
    • Track who does what, mark completed.
    • Provide administrator UI for defining tasks.
    • Cross-check / verify task, or compare result of two users on same task.
    • Administer tests and training for new workers.
  • Upload photos or video from a smart phone
    • Design a widget (to be included in an Eden form) that can be used to select images or video, with any needed detection of the type of phone.
