Descriptions

Short Description

XWiki offers a generic web platform for developing collaborative applications using the wiki paradigm, allowing customization through a vast collection of extensions.

Long Description

XWiki is an open source software development platform based on the wiki principles, under the LGPL license. In addition to being a full-featured wiki, it is also a second generation wiki allowing effortless development of collaborative web applications. On top of this platform a plethora of applications are developed, targeted mainly on aiding enterprise-level needs.

XWiki has a vibrant community of developers and users, consisting of individual users as well as organizations around the world that are using XWiki for their own Communities or Intranets.

One of the most high profile downstream projects built on top of XWiki is the XCLAMS framework, http://xclams.xwiki.org/, which is being used to develop open curriculae hubs such as Curriki, Open Sankoré and I2Geo. The XWiki organization already hosted a couple of projects supporting XCLAMS development in the past years, and this year the XCLAMS community decided to join us a sub-organization with more mentors and proposals.

Within XWiki, the development involves several levels: serverside platform programming in Java with Servlet technologies, serverside application development in Velocity, Groovy, CSS and HTML, RIA development in GWT, and clientside development in JavaScript.

We propose projects that cover serverside Servlet programming, rich application development on the clientside, usability and performance improvements.

Message to accepted students

Congratulations! You have been accepted by the XWiki organization!

Please take the time to know your mentor, get known by the community and get up to speed with the development process required for the successful completion of your project.

Fixing some minor bugs around the components you are going to work with is always a good start in getting familiar with the code.

Finally, don't forget to communicate as much as possible. Always talk about what you are doing and what you are having a hard time with.

Have a great summer of code!

See you on the mailing list,
-XWiki

Message to rejected students

We are sorry, but your application was rejected.

There can be numerous reasons for this:

  • We liked you, but due to the low number of available slots for the XWiki organization we were forced to drop you in favor of someone else
  • Your application was not detailed enough, lacking either proof of understanding the project, a good roadmap for the work to be done or proof that you have the required skills to complete the project
  • You did not interact enough on the community and thus we did not get the chance to know you and validate what you claim in your application form
  • You seemed to be engaged in too many other activities for the summer and this could have heavily impacted the success of your project
  • etc.

If you do not find yourself in one of the above situations, you can contact us any time and we will provide you a more detailed response according to your individual case.

We hope that this will not discourage you from applying to XWiki in future editions of GSoC.

Also, don't forget that you are always welcomed in the XWiki community and that, should you choose to, you are more than welcomed to still work on the project you initially applied to with the help of the entire community.

Have a great summer and hope to hear from you on the mailing list!
