GSoC 2013 Schedule: Enhance Profiles.WordPress.org
Here is the final schedule of enhancing profiles.wordpress.org during GSoC 2013…
Student: Mert Yazicioglu
Bio: I’m from Ankara, Turkey and I will be working on enhancing profiles.wordpress.org this summer. I’m currently studying Computer Technology and Information Systems at Bilkent University for a BS degree and I have just completed my junior year. I have successfully developed WordPress Move during GSoC'11, so this is my second time as a GSoC student with WordPress.
Project Description: Although WordPress.org has been enhanced both design-wise and feature-wise, profiles.wordpress.org did not see much love. Being a plugin developer and a core contributor, I would personally love to interact with the other developers, without feeling the need of leaving the .org ecosystem. I will be working on both increasing the engagement on .org profiles and the overall contribution to WordPress. WordPress developers should be able to fully represent themselves using their profiles on WordPress.org, that will be my aim.
June 25th – A wireframe of the new profile design (Better Representation of the Information), a local replica of the live environment (Enhanced Activity Stream) and the research regarding how we can feed the Activity Stream with Trac and bbPress data properly (Enhanced Activity Stream) should complete by now.
July 2nd - The codebase for feeding the Enhanced Activity Stream from Trac should be ready by now.
July 9th – The codebase for feeding the Enhanced Activity Stream from bbPress should be ready and the codebase for feeding the Enhanced Activity Stream from Trac should be finalized by now.
July 16th - The codebase for feeding the Enhanced Activity Stream from bbPress should be finalized and the codebase for fetching the Enhanced Activity Stream data should be complete by now.
July 23rd - The codebase for adding and editing Links to Profiles on Other Sites should be complete and the preparation for the new UI of the profiles should be started by now.
July 28th - The new UI of profiles (Better Representation of the Information, Links to Profiles on Other Sites and A Better Way to List Plugins) should be complete by now.
July 29th – August 2nd – Mid-term Evaluations
August 12th – All the known bug fixes should be done by now.
August 19th – Another round of feedbacks from the users should be gathered by now.
August 26th – The necessary changes reported by the users should be done by now.
September 2nd - Code should be checked for the last time to see if any improvements are needed, by now.
