    typo3 

    Started with Typo3. After going through the guidelines, I feel we must know web,cms and php thoroughly. Even the bugs that I looked is also related to this. I don’t have good knowledge on these subjects. So how to go about with this? Can you please share some good reference materials.

     

     
    • bithin 10:04 pm on February 29, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I have not looked into Typo3. Even I am hearing it for the first time 🙂 Thanks for sharing it. So, I will not be able to help on this. But, the other three requirement that you need to learn Typo3, I can help you on that. First thing that you should know before approaching a CMS is its architecture and before that you should know how to use it is properly used :). And to starting coding part it is important to know web technologies. I am sure that you will be having some basic idea about that after attending the RTE workshop.
      The best way to learn web technologies is to try make your own application using PHP-MySQL from the scratch. If you know OOP concept, try to coding PHP in OOP ( if you are new to PHP don’t go for it ). Side by side you make sure that you are making yourself familiar with Typo3.
      If you have any doubt you can post it here 🙂

      Article : http://avinashjoshi.co.in/blog/2011/05/01/blob/ , you can download this application and see through the code. You will be able to understand it much better than Typo3.

    Finally, I submitted my Data structures Assignment on Self Organized List. It was a nice experience to learn how to link different files together and to make it run as a single code, to use Makefiles, to input and output using files. I am loving to code now as I feel more confident. Full credits to Padmamala Ma’am.

    What after GSoC? 

    Hey,

    Thought we could perhaps what could be done by those students who don’t make it to GSoC 2012. Here’s a few ideas. Do keep adding to this list!

    Your GSoC idea!!

    http://wiki.ilugc.in/index.php?title=Projects_List

    Online registration application for Amrita Kalotsavam

    Take up FOSS club website and revamp it to become real cool and active(NIT-C FOSSCell’s site http://www.fosscell.nitc.ac.in/)

    Deploy a wiki under Amrita FOSS domain that could be a collection of articles, how-tos etc. People could post the same things they blog about.

     
    • bithin 8:51 pm on February 27, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I will help those people who are going to work for building the online application (using PHP or Django) . We had a plan of redesigning the foss club website but couldn’t finish it. It wil be great if some of the second years can take up this job :). Due to lack of time I will not be able to work on it. But will definity guide if you are planning to make it using drupal or wordpress.
      Wiki will be a really nice idea. It will be very useful for the junior too 🙂

      Atleast a few of them could work with Android, and I would be happy to help them out. Including on projects such as openIntents, and also we had a plan to build amritapuri.org android app.

        This reminds me of Abhilash etan’s post in Amritapuri-CS last week about research.. And there he told us the idea of making an android APP which will sense the Pressure cooker whistle and then give alerts.. Here we had a chance to go through some similar code which senses the human whistle.. So, someone could try that too.

      Project Idea: Limesurvey deployment

      InCTF requires some surveys to be conducted as a part of the contest. It’ll be great if someone could deploy this in the InCTF domain and make it easy for organizers to create surveys. This could also be deployed in Amrita FOSS domain so that similar surveys can be conducted there. This will be useful exercise and provide a wealth of information for research in education I’d say.

      If you want to take this up, explore limesurvey(http://www.limesurvey.org/) an open source survey tool and see if it could be used. Please contact me if you’re interested to know the requirements.

      There are a few ideas I can think of. The best idea is to hone ones skills first.
      1. Python/Django: Build a Django app which allows students to login and manage their class schedules, assignments, TODO lists, projects etc. This would give them a good idea about how to go about development using an MVC framework. Then, they could go ahead and contribute to Open source projects which use Django.
      PS: I could guide a group of motivated students over the summer
      2. Android development – Build an Android app to make it easy to track missing people/family during disasters like an earthquake, tsunami etc. It could allow users to pre-register with their info, and given permissions, can track their last known position while using GPS, information of which would ideally be in 1. Central database (or) 2. Available for friends of that person to access. Of course, once this is done, students can contribute to one of the many open source android projects, or even create an android app for one of them.
      (Maybe Rahul/Unni can guide some students)
      3. ECE students can fiddle around with the Rasberry pi once it comes out? Or do something useful with Arduino ? (I am not sure on this front)

      Just copy pasting one of Arvind’s idea.. got it from the group mailing list.

      Idea: Create a tool that cleans up the home folder.

      This is fairly simple I’d say. Many applications get installed and create invisible directories in $HOME to store data per user but some do not remove it when uninstalled. The goal is to create a simple tool that detects whether the invisible directory is related to an application, if so is the app installed else “rm -rf $PWD”.

      Warning: Don’t mess up and end up deleting required data :D. Be careful!

      Project: Setup an IRC bot and write test cases for it

      I just thought of this so thought I’d pen it down just in case-felt it might be useful for beginners. InCTF needs an info bot that can memorize common responses and respond when requested by users. The goal of this project is to setup supybot-a popular IRC bot written in python-and also a decent number of test cases to ensure that the responses are appropriate. Contact me if you need to know the exact requirements that the bot should satisfy. The test cases can be in any language but preferably in python/twisted-it’s good to learn twisted framework I’d say :).

      (This can be extended for other protocols if interested 🙂 )

      If this is too trivial, you could investigate the data from Gmail and see if something can be done. For instance, write a tool that shows breakdown of the chat clients i.e. who’re using Gtalk, Gmail chat, Pidgin, Kopete, Empathy etc

    The real DBMS teacher 

    Today we had a session on DBMS by Sandhya Ma’m, our CSE HOD as a part of CIR’s usually boring technical sessions. But this was  indeed an odd one out. She talked about the subject for just half an hour but after the class, I strongly felt she had made the toughest concepts in DB really simple. She started off in a cool manner by saying that it was the subject she hated the most in her college days. She told about her first interview experience where they scrounged her with DB questions. She made every definition crystal clear(not the text book style) and I felt she did a better job than what our teacher did for the whole of last semester.

    Thank you ma’m, you should have in fact taught us DBMS.

      The following line

      struct Dnode *temp=(struct Dnode*)malloc(sizeof(struct Dnode));

      is of no use since temp is reassigned in the very next line.

      temp=N.header->next;

      What is the data type of N.header->next? I’ve a feeling that is the issue.

        Ya, I guess Arvind is right. Why do you want to allocate memory for a pointer?It is just a pointer rite?

          hmm…. I removed the memory allocation part. But still the same warning remains.
          Warning: return from incompatible pointer type

      Is it written from scratch or has parts of Apache server code..?? And is there a good number of community behind it??

      • bithin 8:36 am on February 28, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        It is a UNIX based web server which is written from scarch. Apache webserver is there for both Window and Linux. It has been build with keeping security in mind.

      I forgot to add.. initially at least let’s have 3 post per person per day..!! “Well” with me it’s just a better utilization of the work time here..!!

      Till sometime shall I keep this as sticky ?? May be till we get upto 20 members.. all active and going.. ?? And one more thing @all I am hiding the comments thread by default so that the UI is a bit more clean.. do tell me if the other way is better.. what do you feel ??

    • pprahul 9:20 am on March 2, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      It is getting too cluttered I feel.. Other than increasing the number of “recent comments”, there is no other way for people to know if someone has updated or not!! What to do ??

      • Arvind 4:28 pm on March 2, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Hiding comments is cool-looks neat too! People can subscribe to a blog and get email updates delivered to inbox. I know cos I’m subscribed to a few blogs.

        We could connect the blog to social networks such as FB or twitter too maybe?

        Maybe Settings -> Email post changes could help?

        • pprahul 11:07 pm on March 2, 2012 Permalink | Reply

          Yup.. looks neat indeed!! Ya..they could actually subscribe and see all the posts and comments.. hmm..But I wouldn’t like to see my inbox filled with 10 comments and 4 posts daily :)..

          Hmm..lets try tweaking some of the settings to get better at it… anyways have a great InCTF and then we shall continue..!!
