phpBB Participates in the Google Summer of Code
Mar 13, 2014 @ 11:54:24

As is mentioned in this new post to the phpBB forums, the project is participating in the Google Summer of Code project this year. phpBB is one of the longest running, widely used open source PHP forums software.

With two years of participation under our belt, I am glad to announce that phpBB is once again taking part in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program this year. Google's Summer of Code program encourages students to get involved in free and open source software (F/OSS) by pairing them up with experienced mentors in popular F/OSS projects.

If you're interested in working on the phpBB project this year, check out their Ideas page for some examples of things they're wanting to work on. You'll need to be familiar with the git version control system to do the work and will need to apply to be considered for this year's event.

PHP GSoC 2009 is coming!
Mar 10, 2009 @ 09:33:22

Its about that time again and David Coallier has pointed it out - the Google Summer of Code is not far off and PHP will be right in the middle again!

Once again we are happy to announce that PHP will be taking part in the Google Summer of Code. Already with a list of more than interesting and intelligent ideas, we are looking to get more ideas. This of course means that PEAR Developers, PECL Developers and PHP(Core) Developers now have to cook some ideas up and submit them to the GSoC 2009 PHP Wiki so we can have more good ideas for students to apply to!

There's already a few things about this year's GSoC that have been posted - the page on the PHP.net wiki, a mailing list announcement on the PEAR dev list and, of course, the official GSoC page.

The harest week (GSoC Docbook Renderer)
Jul 21, 2008 @ 12:07:39

Rudy Nappee has just finished what he calls the hardest week in his Google Summer of Code project - work on the PDF output methods:

Here was the hardest GSoC week ! I wrote a big part of the PDF output and both the themes "phppdf" (each PHP manual part in a file) and "phpbigpdf" (a big PDF file with all the sections).

Rudy's project for the GSoC is to create a Docbook renderer that can take in a standard Docbook file and output it into multiple formats. This past week saw the development of the PDF output method but he's also created methods for making a CHM (Windows help file) and a manpage output format. You can keep up with his latest progress on his blog.

Update on Mutation Testing
Jul 26, 2007 @ 07:54:00

Sebastian Bergmann has provided a pointer to the update Mike has posted concerning the Google Summer of Code project he's working on - implementing mutation testing in PHPUnit.

From Mike's update:

The most recent version committed to the mutation_testing branch is in a testable state. I would encourage anyone interested to try out the new mutation testing feature in this branch.

You can get complete information about the project - its methods and goals - from this page on the PHPUnit wiki. If you'd like to get this new code a try and see what his mutation testing is all about, here's a link to the subversion repository to grab the latest copy.
