Organization 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.

Within XWiki, the development involves several levels: server-side platform programming in Java with Servlet technologies, server-side application development in Velocity, Groovy, and client-side development in JavaScript, CSS and HTML.

We propose projects that cover server-side Servlet programming and client-side rich application development, together with 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,

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!
