Sahana Google Summer of Code 2010

The Sahana Community Development Committee would like to welcome everyone to the 2010 Sahana Google Summer of Code. The Sahana Software Foundation has again been accepted as an mentoring organization with Google. Sahana has successfully been a part of the Google Summer of code in 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009. These involvements have been very effective in building both the project and the community, so we are looking forward to having another productive year as well…

Deprecated Information


Interested in mentoring? We are recruiting experienced Sahana contributors - both developers and domain experts, to serve as mentors again this year. Former Sahana GSOC students are strongly encouraged to help mentor Sahana GSOC projects as the Sahana Software Foundation will not be considering former Sahana GSOC students this year. We will assign two mentors to every project - a domain expert and an experienced Sahana developer - which helps balance the time commitment required to be able to effectively contribute. Please sign up as a mentor on our mentor sign up form.

Project Ideas

There is a section to enter non-project specific ideas below - as well as links to project-specific ideas pages. Please do contribute your ideas to these pages.

Sahana Agasti (PHP)
Sahana Eden (Python)
General Project Ideas

Such projects could include (for example), mobile applications capable of providing data to either the Sahana Agasti or Sahana Eden applications through XML, SMS or other open standard. (Hey, that's a great idea!)

  • Platform neutral data collection on mobile devices – i.e. build javarosa form to collect data and send to both PHP and Python Sahana servers. Simple plotting of categorized event on the situation map, Missing person / disaster victim intake;
  • Build two-way interoperability between Sahana MPRs using PFIF standard.
  • Build two-way interoperability between Sahana MPRs and Google Person Finder PFIF API.
  • Sahana and Linked Data Develop Sahana APIs to enable Sahana to interoperate with Linked Data on the semantic Web.
