Summer of Code/Resources
Sugar Labs is a big project. Like all big projects, it has a big wiki. Here are some pointers:
- Learn about the Sugar Learning Platform
- Sign up to our mailing lists & connect via our IRC channels
- Learn how the different Sugar Labs project teams work together
Getting the Code
- Know git? Visit our resource page for developers to see the repositories of all of the Sugar modules & core Activities
- You may wish to learn the terms we use to describe Sugar's components
Getting to work on bugs is a great way to start your introduction to the Sugar code base. Hint: Search for sugar-love in the bug tracker.
- Visit https://dev.sugarlabs.org, also known as https://bugs.sugarlabs.org/
- Learn our bug status codes
GSoC Project Ideas
Are you looking for things that could occupy your time over the summer break? There are several proposals that are looking for some enthusiastic support:
- Development Team/Project Ideas
- Activity Team/Project Ideas
- Sugar Camp, Boston 2008
- OLPC:Projects and Proposals
We are also very keen to have a student or two adopt a mature Activity. This would involve completing a set of non-trivial patches for a particular Activity. This is a great opportunity to get to know how others' code is written. You'll be able to show to your future employers that you're able to fit in nicely with a currenty software project.
- Almanac is the hub of the development team. The development team's focus is the core of the Sugar Learning Platform.
- Resources is a portal of resources for the Activity team. The Activity team is focused on maintaining the individual Activities that sit within the Sugar Learning Platform.
- Sugar Labs/Communication channels for communication channels
