My name is Andrei Burada from Politehnica University of Bucharest,
I am interested in developing for this project, especially for the new
LimeSurvey 2 during the GSOC 2010 and beyond.
I worked with PHP and MySQL databases, jQuery and a lot of CakePHP. So
I think it's great that the 2.0 LimeSurvey will be CakePHP-based (great
I have a small problem tho: I can't decide on a specific project.
The most interesting thing is to implement the survey logic. I could
first make the editor and the db storage engine and after that the
integration with an actual survey.
I've already implemented a RPN parser project for a Data Structure
course, so I also know the algorithmic part.
I could do the mini-projects, but I think that it's rather an easy
The Facebook application sounds interesting and since I developed a
feature to an old project related to Facebook. The long story short:
after you registered with that application which was linking cities
with town-halls and with users, you had the option to import your
Facbook profile in that site, and spare the time of completing the same
infos all over again.
Also, like Mazi suggested, the Poll project would be great merged with
the Facebook app.
The bad thing is that there is already a Facebook poll application. The
good thing is that it isn't working :). So it would be great to make
something usable for all the Facebook users.
I could also work at the survey community project. It would be great to
actually have a db with a lot of questions and possible answers and all
the community to submit their new questions. It would make a survey
administrator's work a lot easier. The problem here is that you would
have a lot of duplicate entries.
I suggest that it should be developed an algorithm that makes a
matching percentage based on some tags. This would help the admin to
decide easier if he activates the entry or deletes it.
So my question is: could you please give me some pieces of advice on
what to chose? Because I presume that I can't work at multiple projects
at the same time.
And another thing: I would be glad to continue to develop for the
LimeSurvey 2.0 project after the end of GSOC (and possibly finish some
unfinished GSOC ideas).
