FOSSASIA is a mentor organization at Google Code-In, and the Beijing GNU/Linux User Group has been invited to join them as mentors.
Two of us joined and created tasks for our projects.
At first i created tasks for our community-calendar project, but then i took the opportunity to get students to work on new projects that i had been hoping to do. For a long time i wanted to learn smalltalk, but i lacked good project ideas. This changed recently, as a friend asked me about a text search application, and one of my customers needed a better solution than htpasswd to manage users for nginx. I decided that both could be done in smalltalk.
So i created tasks for three new projects: A text search application to run on the desktop, and one on mobile, and a user-management web-application. For the desktop and the web-application i stipulated pharo smalltalk as the implementation platform. For good measure i also threw in my idealist for sup, a reimplementation of the frontend for this weblog in angular.js, a t-shirt design for the BLUG, packaging pike, and exploration of the meetup.com api. I also proposed a new structure of the files for the fossasia api, and helped mentor a few tasks relating to getting chinese communities added to the api.
