This group is for the Google Summer of Code, 2009.
DrupalCamp and drupalCons are drupal events are happening throughout the year all over the globe. But there are many drupaltista's are out there who are unable to attend those great events of drupal worlds.
Can't we have a online drupalcamp? A online platform for all and available 24x7 for every drupaltistas.
I would happy to listen your voice/thought here about this idea.
Hi all- as you may already know, The Google Summer of Code is about to get started for 2010. At the moment we are trying to come up with ideas that students can craft proposals around, and I was hoping that we could get a few Views related proposals. IMO- nothing can raise your community profile, outside of working a lot on core, like Views related work, and it also happens to be one of the most marketable skills within the thriving Drupal ecosystem. So- it would be great if we could get a couple of Views related projects proposed.
Please, please, please, if you have any ideas for how a student could spend three months working on views related tasks, please add ideas to the Google Summer of Code Group (and consider mentoring as well- it's an awesome way to help out, meet up and coming developers, and increase your standing within the community).
dereine already put forth a few ideas for backends for Views as a wiki on SoC group (http://groups.drupal.org/node/57168 ), which is quoted below. Because that post is a wiki I thought we could move the discussion for his proposal to this thread.
Thanks for chiming in and helping out!Read more
I'm excited to announce that the Google Summer of Code is happening again in 2010! Last year Drupal went a perfect 18-for-18, meaning that all of our students passed the SoC, and we even got a "bonus student" who worked on Drupal module for the Creative Commons.
Please help get the SoC started by joining the Google Summer of Code 2010 group, and by posting project ideas to the group! Student Proposals should be marked as such in the "Project Type", as the students will get first dibs on that project idea once the voting starts. All other project ideas should be marked "Community Proposal" and will be open to all SoC applicants.
If you are a student thinking of applying to the program I highly suggest you do the following things:Read more
So we're this close to an alpha for the Media module (for d7). There are only a few outstanding critical alpha-blocking issues that need to be resolved. I'd hoped to have it today, but it looks like it'll probably be Monday.
Next week is the time for you to jump in if you're interested in developing for the project! It's been loads of fun, from the initial discussions and plans over a year ago with arthurf, dopry, drewish, Roger López, myself and others, to fantastic core Drupal 7 integration of stream wrappers by pwolanin and GSOC student jmstacey, to some powerhouse #d7ux magic by mverbaar and Jody Lynn, to the latest overhaul introducing Media fieldable entities (with an eye for core Drupal 8) and WYSIWYG integration by JacobSingh and dipen chaudhary, with some potential upcoming fine-tuning from jQuery guru dmitrig01.
If you're interested, join us in IRC at #drupal-media. After giving the module a spin (you'll need Drupal 7 Alpha 1, Media, Styles, and WYSIWYG + CKEditor, and optionally Media: Flickr and/or Media: YouTube), you should subscribe to the Issue queue. (You can also see recent screenshots at AaronWinborn.com.)Read more
Fellow Media Moguls,
We're shaking off the dust from the Media module, which was sadly neglected during the heady Summer of Code, where we got Stream Wrappers into core! I'm excited to meet now with my fellow Drupalistas, and get the module presentable for Drupal 7 (and Drupal 6, if anyone is interested in helping on that front).Read more
I'm at DrupalCon Paris right now, and between the amazing people, interesting sessions, and gorgeous City of Lights, I only have a few moments, but I wanted to make a quick (and exciting) announcement. The Google Summer of Code officially wrapped up last week, and the Drupal students and mentors did an amazing job this year. “How amazing?," you ask. Well, not only did all 18 of the students that worked directly with Drupal mentors successfully complete their projects, but we got an extra bonus successful student.Read more
Thanks to the support of GSoC'09, I was able to develop the Recommender Bundle for Drupal, which includes the following modules:

Students and Mentors, the summer is drawing to a close, and you know what that means: time for your final evaluations.
According to the calendar Final Evaluations are to begin on August 17th, with those evaluations due by August 24th, so the time to wrap things up is NOW!
I'll be traveling until the 24th, so please e-mail me if you have any questions.
Thanks and good luck finishing up!
This is the seventh update of the Rules Monkey Summer of Code project. The progress we made last week:
- Rules has now some new icons in the admin area (including some other usability fixes)
- Patches are ready for two new Rules form support features: disabling elements and setting a default value
This is the sixth update of the Rules Monkey Summer of Code project. Many good news:
- Form support for Rules has been committed, have fun!
- Fago gave me CVS access to Rules, because I will be the Form support maintainer (I will try to not break Rules ;-)
- We did some research for new icons in Rules.
- I worked on some usability details, the corresponding issue also contains the new icons.
Today I finished up the last strokes (to me at least) of the bot authentication, which I added to my sandbox repository. In the past few weeks I have struggled with making the simpletest of the bot working reliably, so we decided with Morbus to move ahead with the other submodules. (even tho, i figured there is another way to make this work, with either a CLI client, or using the PHP filesockets, will do this when i got some time).Read more
Well, I miss one WU, but here the 2-weeks update :-D .. a little late :-p

Now the details.Read more
- The form support code is located in a sub-module of Rules
- Rules admins can activate/deactivate events on selected forms
- Form element IDs are made visible for the Rules admin on the selected form
- Currently there are 3 events: "form is being built", "form is validated" and "form is submitted"
- There is one condition to check a form element value
This is the fourth update of the Rules Monkey Summer of Code project. A lot of progress has been made last week:
- Rules scheduler changes were committed to the official Rules CVS repository, yay!
- I wrote 3 tutorials to help people understand and use Rules scheduler
- I implemented an action to delete nodes, which was also committed
