Get with the program: open source coding with Google Summer of Code

Google Open Source Blog - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 22:27
Cross Posted from the Official Google Blog

Tobi Mueller started coding when his grandfather, who works in IT, gave him access to a spare PC. It was a sweet 286 machine which Tobi learned to program with the then-popular teaching language Pascal. He eventually became interested in free and open source software, but it was Google Summer of Code (GSoC) that helped transform Tobi into the free software contributor he is today.

Tobi was a GSoC student in 2007 for GNOME, a free software desktop environment. He’s been a regular contributor to the GNOME community ever since—and in 2012, Tobi was elected to the GNOME Foundation board of directors.

Tobi is one of more than 7,500 students who have participated in Google Summer of Code program over the past nine years. Every summer, GSoC participants work with various organizations in the open source community, building important technical skills and gaining workplace experience. Students aren’t the only ones who benefit; their projects also give back to the open source community. Karen Sandler, GNOME’s executive director, told us how Google Summer of Code “encourages and empowers” new contributors and helps “invigorate projects.”
So if you’re a university student looking to earn real-world experience this summer, we hope you’ll consider coding for a cool open source project with Google Summer of Code. We’re celebrating the 10th year of the program in 2014, and we’d love to see more student applicants than ever before. In 2013 we accepted almost 1,200 students and we’re planning to accept 10 percent more this year.

You can submit proposals on our website starting now through Friday, March 21 at 12:00pm PDT. Get started by reviewing the ideas pages of the 190 open source projects in this year’s program, and decide which projects you’re interested in. There are a limited number of spots, and writing a great project proposal is essential to being selected to the program—so be sure to check out the Student Manual for advice. For ongoing information throughout the application period and beyond, see the Google Open Source blog.

Good luck to all the open source coders out there, and remember to submit your proposals early—you only have until March 21 to apply!

FOSDEM: an explosion of Google Summer of Code support

Google Open Source Blog - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 18:06
Earlier this month, as part of the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 10th year celebration, three of us from the Google Open Source Programs Office (Cat Allman, Jeremy Allison and Stephanie Taylor) traveled to Brussels, Belgium to attend the FOSDEM open source conference. We joined over 5,000 other FOSS enthusiasts to talk about GSoC and highlight the work of some of our students and mentors. 

We were honored to have a table dedicated to all things Google Summer of Code this year.  Twelve past students and mentors from 10 projects were kind enough to join us and talk to attendees about their organizations and projects. We even had a robot walking along the conference floor thanks to our friends at The Italian Mars Society!

During the two day conference Cat, Jeremy and I had the opportunity to meet and chat with hundreds of people. It was such a rewarding experience for all of us to have a chance to meet  many of the former students and mentors who have been part of the GSoC success story. We also talked to many members of open source projects interested in learning more about how to apply to this year’s GSoC program. The timing couldn’t have been better -- the GSoC organization application opened the next day! 

Interested students came to the table and inquired about a variety of topics including the skills needed for the program, the time required to participate, best practices for writing a student proposal and the types of orgs that have participated. A list of all 440 mentoring organizations from the past nine years was available for folks to peruse. 

It was great to see so many students and mentors sporting GSoC t-shirts from many years ago, some of which could almost be considered vintage! There were also some Google Code-in shirts mixed in the bunch too.

Something we often hear from prospective students is that they don’t think they are “good enough” to be accepted as a GSoC student so they are leery of applying. We stress that the program is about hard work, dedication, and an interest in learning more about open source software development. You don’t have to be the most amazing coder the world has ever seen, but you do need to be hardworking and excited about the organization and project you are working on to be truly successful.

We’ve just recently announced the 190 open source projects that will act as mentoring organizations for 2014.  These two weeks before the student application period are a KEY time for students to research the organizations, find two or three of interest and learn more about how they work. This includes reaching out to organizations directly (before proposals begin on March 10), discussing the project’s proposed ideas list and really getting a feel for what organizations are looking for from a student proposal. 

Thanks to all of the students, mentors and open source friends who stopped by at FOSDEM. We hope to see you again next year!

Google Code-in and Haiku: four years strong

Google Open Source Blog - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 19:00
Google Code-in wrapped up in January and the 20 Grand Prize Winners have been announced. Haiku, a veteran GCI organization, is here to talk about their experience and history of participating in GCI. 

This was the fourth year of Google Code-in, and the fourth for Haiku to participate as a mentoring organization for students. This contest came at a good point this year for Haiku as our package management merge happened just a few weeks prior to the start of the contest and thus gave us plenty of ideas for tasks. Nearly half of our tasks were somehow related to writing recipes for packages to be built into .hpkg files. We also opened our Coverity scan results for students to try their hand at fixing some of those issues for the first time. Along with these tasks, there were several others which ranged from fixing specific bugs from Haiku's Trac tickets, to writing new programs. Examples include a blogging program and a spider solitaire game, and even a few projects for artistic students who created a new flyer and some new icons.

This year we had five students who completed 20 or more tasks, more than any of our students completed during GCI 2012. We had 42 students who completed a total of 245 tasks for Haiku which is more than have been completed in any previous year for Haiku, so it was a very good year for us. Of the 42 students, 19 of them completed three or more tasks which qualified them to receive a Google Code-in 2013 t-shirt.

I'd like to thank the 19 Haiku mentors, which included three former Google Code-in students, and all 42 students who completed at least one task for Haiku this year. Also a special thanks to those who were on IRC to help handle the flood of students during the contest, for their patience in answering all the questions that the students were asking. It was another very productive (and fun!) Code-in.

Case study: Peopleware

The Dojo Toolkit - Announcements - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 14:09

The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. This time, we interview Adriaan Peeters from PeopleWare, a Belgian company that creates enterprise web applications. Adriaan is the project leader of the MealWare project.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

A: This choice was made after weighing Dojo against its competitors and finding that it offered a good mix between maturity, feature set and community. Dojo is a comprehensive toolkit that includes UI components as well as an entire framework for architecting and building applications. We’re also convinced that Dojo offers a stable platform to develop rich enterprise applications that gives users the feeling they’re using a desktop application. That’s why we decided to introduce Dojo as the company standard.

Q: Why did you choose Dojo?

A: The choice for Dojo was obvious as it was the company standard and we needed to make software to run on a set-top-box with a HD TV screen, which required a rock solid user interface. Many parts of the application were marked as a potential widget after drawing the screens on paper. Since Dojo offers a broad set of widgets already, it helped us to kickstart the project. We were a bit concerned about the possibilities to style the Dojo components to look nice on a HD TV but this turned out to be very easy to implement.

Q: Were you previously using another toolkit?

A: The developers in our company have experience with several other JavaScript libraries and utilities like jQuery, AngularJS, RequireJS and Backbone.js. Once the developers found their way through the extensive documentation, they were thrilled with the functionality Dojo offers by default.

Q: How does your application use Dojo?

A: MealWare is meant to run on a set-top-box, which is attached to a HD television. This set-up is installed in every room of a retirement home enabling elderly people to select a breakfast, lunch and dinner from the daily menu using their IR remote.

At a high level, the application consists of a back-end RESTful API written in C# and a Dojo front-end which communicates with this back-end using dojo/store/JsonRest.

The front-end is a single-page Dojo application written using HTML5 and CSS3 with the focus on an easy, fast and beautiful user experience. To allow control of the user interface via IR remote, the set-top-box emulated key presses which we handle using dojo/keys to enable keyboard navigation in the UI. We started out using the basic Dojo widgets to prototype the functionality and ultimately moved to building our own custom widgets because MealWare runs on a HD TV and we had to meet very specific layout requirements.

A combination of xstyle and sass is used for the styling of the application. This keeps our CSS code clean and readable while, once deployed, we have the benefit of having a single CSS file containing all information

Q: Overall what is your user experience with Dojo?

A: Dojo feels like a solid, but highly customizable, framework that can be used in different kinds of projects. It can be used to quickly build a prototype using standard components and migrating this to a fully customised user experience while retaining the same underlying component code. We have a project that focuses on graphics and ease of use which we successfully implemented thanks to Dojo. By creating some high quality widgets, we could quickly respond to changes in the customer’s requirements.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about Dojo?

A: The AMD loader makes life a lot easier. It’s a powerful tool to keep our code organized and clean. It also provides a good overview of the libraries used in the application.

Q: What are your future plans with Dojo?

A: Our next projects will certainly use Dojo since it’s proven to be a powerful framework that can fill in our needs and help us to maintain a high quality!

First of all the user can select the menu of preference

Then the beverage can be selected

Then the user can choose what to put on his or her bread

At last the user needs to confirm his or her order

After confirming the order, the user is send to the main screen again


Thanks Adriaan for telling us about your experience with Dojo. If you would like to share your experience with Dojo, please contact us.

Google Summer of Code wrap-up: OSGeo

Google Open Source Blog - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 19:00
Today is the final post in our series of guest posts from veteran Google Summer of Code 2013 organizations. OSGeo is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the collaborative development of open source geospatial software and promote its widespread use. They have participated in Google Summer of Code for the past seven years!

OSGeo participated in Google Summer of Code 2013 with 22 accepted students from 15 software projects. This has been the seventh consecutive year of participation for OSGeo, with the highest success rate ever — 21 of 22 students got a positive final evaluation from their mentors. Two projects from 2013 that were particularly successful were:

ScribeUI: A GUI and tools for MapServer mapfile editing - Jessica Lapointe, mentored by Julien-Samuel Lacroix.

OpenTripPlanner: a stable and improved Android client for walk, bike, and transit routing based on OpenStreetMap and GTFS data - Vreixo Gonzáles, mentored by Stefan Steiniger.

Jessica and Vreixo were among the most autonomous, inventive, collaborative and communicative students of 2013. Both delivered a tool ready for use and further development. You can explore a full list of our wonderful GSoC students and their projects here.

Since our participation in GSoC began seven years ago, many students have contributed to our open source geospatial projects — several of which have joined our regular developer team or have even gone on to become GSoC mentors! We would like to thank all of the students, mentors and coordinators who contributed to the success of the program.

ApacheCon US 2014, Denver, April 7-9 2014 Front page news - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 18:40

apachecon_denverThe Apache Software Foundation is pleased to announce ApacheCon US 2014, which we’re presenting in conjunction with the Linux Foundation. The conference will be held in Denver, Colorado, and features three days, ten tracks of content on more than 70 of the Apache Software Foundation’s Open Source projects, including Apache OpenOffice, Apache Hadoop, Apache Lucene, and many others.

We’re especially pleased to welcome SourceForge as a media partner for this event.

See ApacheCon website for the full schedule, as well as the evening events, BOFs, Lightning Talks, and project summits.

Co-located with the event is the Cloudstack Collaboration Conference, the best place to learn about Apache CloudStack.

Apache OpenOffice has an entire day of content, including both technical and community talks. (See the agenda for the full list.)

Hadoop, and its ecosystem of Big Data projects, has more than five full days of content (two tracks on two days, one track on the other).

Other projects, such as Cordova, Tomcat, and the Apache http server, have a fully day, or two, of content.

If you want to learn more about Apache Allura (Incubating), an Open Source software forge (and also the code that runs SourceForge) we’ll have two presentations about Allura, by two of the engineers who work on that code: Dave Brondsema and Wayne Witzel. Learn how to use Allura to develop your own projects, and join the community to make the platform even better.

This is the place to come if you rely on any of the projects of the Apache Software Foundation, and if you want to hang out with the men and women who develop them. We’ve been doing this event since 1998, and this promises to be the best one yet, with more content than we’ve ever presented before.

Rich Bowen, Executive Vice President of the Apache Software Foundation and former SourceForge Community Growth Hacker

Convertigo, Mobile Application Development Platform for Enterprises Front page news - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 14:08

convertigo-enterprise-mashup-logoThis is a guest blog post from Convertigo. Enterprise mobility projects are spreading like wildfire. When they deliver value, business leaders in every department seem to want more – and that’s when the bottleneck happens. Instead of connecting one data source to one type of mobile device, your IT infrastructure is faced with multiple device platforms, complex security issues, and disparate enterprise applications and data sources – many with no API.

To accommodate the many-device to many-platform mobile application integration scenario and the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) paradigm that most IT teams operate within, Convertigo brings one of the most advanced Open Source Mobile Application Development Platform to Enterprises willing to embrace mobility in an industrial, secured and managed environment.

Convertigo platform features front-end cross-platform development tools linked with a powerful back-end orchestration middleware able to connect to any Enterprise back-office data and process whether there is an API or not.

Convertigo leverages standard open source technologies such as Eclipse, jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap and many others to build an industrial platform to build, run and manage any B2E, B2B and B2C mobile application connected to back office data.
