Hi.

I hope your students enjoyed learning about SMW by actually building an instance.

I would also like to see Semantic Results Formats extended. This way, the students don't have to learn from scratch. They are extending existing functionality and code. Secondly, their efforts will provide tangible results everyone can see.

I would love to see filterable Maps, for example. Both components exist, they just need bringing together.

Best regards
Neill.

A couple of non critical but useful topics I can think of:

- new semantic result formats or input forms 
- new visual themes or better yet, a theme framework to build interfaces from
- examples of semantic aware bots for bulk edits / updates

Good luck with the projects. This is nice to hear.

Everyone,

 

Any ideas for a serious class project, like in PHP, perhaps, that also would be useful to SMW?

 

I have 23 talented junior CS majors who built a SMW-based Wiki this fall.  When populated with data, it will show the flow of concepts related to our courses, etc. at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

 

This same class is next heading into a course in software design.  I would love to give them a design and programming project to do, which could benefit this particular Wiki they built, but which also would be of interest to you, the SMW community.  I suggested PHP, above, because a key goal of the design course is for the students to become adept at software patterns and other OO skills.

 

As a student project, this should not be something critical in your development path, but, ideally, if they produced a high quality result, it is something that might end up rolled into the general product or might become an extension.  In previous classes, we have ended up submitting results back into SourceForge.

 

So, do you have specific ideas that come to mind?  Or, do you have a “wish list” already, that they could go look at, and choose for themselves?

 

We would love to have this class be the test case for an ongoing relationship.

 

Your recommendations are greatly appreciated!
