Non-Coding Project Ideas

GSoC projects must involve some coding. Non-coding projects have been moved into this page. Move them back by adding coding to the projects.

Title Mentor Project
Sugarizer Primero (Sugarizer1°) Education Team
Caryl Bigenho
Samson Goddy
Jaskirat Singh

Brief explanation
Sugarizer is a large collection of many Activities suitable for general audiences. This project will package a subset of the Activities (Minimum of 10 activities) suitable for children with a target age of 4-7 (grades Pre-K-2) and with a friendly UI/UX experience.
Create Examples, Compositions, and New Experiments Every Day!

Devin Ulibarri
Sachiko Nakajima
Brief explanation
Music Blocks has some examples already, but it would be nice to have one ambitious student really work for the summer to make new creative, thoughtful code everyday. Secondary, but important goals, are bug reports when bugs are found, feature suggestions, and overall good and frequent communication with the Music Blocks team.
Expected results
Quality examples sent daily; variety of styles; runs entire gamut in terms of blocks used (we want a number of great examples for each and every block feature); organized documentation of all examples created, which can be finalized in the final weeks of GSoC
Knowledge prerequisites
Understanding of Music Blocks as a programming language; A good proposal is one that has a well-thought out and detailed list of music projects for each day of GSoC (time-frames, blocks used, musical styles, name of music to be transcribed); experience with music and composition/theory is a definite plus.
Maintenance of activities.sugarlabs.org (ASLO) Sam CG
Brief explanation
http://activities.sugarlabs.org/ is the Sugar Labs app store, where activities are hosted and downloaded. During GSoC 2017 we built ASLO v3 to address a number of deficiencies. But we have a few odds and ends that need to be addressed to bring the new site on line.
Expected results
Update missing license and repository info on the activities found in the Sugar Labs github repository. Popular the database for the new ASLO. Do extensive testing (including creating some test suites.) Document future maintenance on the Wiki.
Knowledge prerequisites
PHP, MySQL, Python, Apache, cron, PHP-Cake, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and git. See [1].
Making a Beginner Guide Jaskirat Singh
Walter Bender
Hrishi Patel
Rishabh Thaney
Shivang Shekhar
Samson Goddy

Abdulazeez Abdulazeez

Brief explanation
We don't have a beginner guide for the newcomers to the Sugar labs Community. It would be great to guide them by guiding them how to contribute through making these "form where to start? , What to start? , How to start? , Where to submit? " . An example is the Coala Newcomers' Guide which is built from markdown source. The goal of this task is to Help newcomers to get introduce in easy way to the world of Sugar Labs also make a dasboard for the users so they can get about developed and developing areas. Their contribution can be seen also their presence can be seen with the community.
Expected results
A set of website pages and also documentation in Pdf form with this the problems of newcomers about their contribution will be solved and they can work easily
Knowledge prerequisites
community research, GitHub, coding experience (Markdown, HTML/CSS) for the guide and JavaScipt, PHP for making dasboard.
