London Tiki Fest Gsoc
This page is an ongoing discussion, please edit to add your issues and comments directly on this page.


A tradition in the TikiWiki community, a TikiFest is when there is a meeting between at least 2 TikiWiki contributors that don't usually meet. This is an opportunity, usually, to drink adult beverages, get some laptops out and code wildly in group sessions and/or discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc. depending the mood and context. It is a great opportunity for Tiki users and Tiki power users to meet some of the developers and learn more stuff biggrin

This event will focus on:

Google Summer of Code 2009 GSOC projects

At the bottom of this page you will see how to watch in and/or send messages to the TikiFest

Presentation and lunch at Google UK.

  • I have arranged a visit, presentation and lunch at the Google UK offices. It will be interesting, they do a lot of development work there especially with mobile devices and video.

edu.tiki.org : the resurrection

  • I propose to try to resurrect edu.tiki.org. I'm sure Xavi will say yes!. It might be the tiki site to dog-food workspaces.


To get the GSOC 2009 students together for a TikiFest and get great synergy throughout the Tiki community for these 4 massively important projects.


3rd to 5th July

Other interesting events around the TikiFest

What are we going to talk about?

For those who wants to know what are we going to talk, here we have a resume:


  1. Workspaces Integration GUI GSOC2009 - The main thing I've focused right now
  2. Profiler Tool - A new concept tool that I've thinking to develop
  3. Project repo (repo.tiki.org) - My contribuition to TikiWiki community


  1. Workspaces Integration Databases Layers -GSOC 2009

Jyhem: User interface consistency discussion

[+] Status of Wysiwyg


Olaf-Michael (omstefanov):

  1. If others are interested, and I have interesting things to report, will report on Open Translation Tools 2009, held in Amsterdam 22-24 June. (see http://www.aspirationtech.org/events/opentranslation/2009 as well as http://ott09.aspirationtech.org/index.php/OTT09_Schedule for the draft agenda.)
  2. A topic related to Workspaces may be the problem I've run into with the wiki for the international organizations and EU bodies language services (http://jiamcatt.ourwiki.net albeit-most parts are restricted to members, but I can show these in London), namely that there is no view/read-only permission, not even conceptually, for Newsletter archives in TikiWiki. I'm looking (a) to see whether Workspaces would be good for this wiki (b) for someone interested and willing to fill this gap in TikiWiki.
