Forum OpenACS Development: Mentorship Program : RFC
Is it possible you could give a little more background on your proposals. I don't mind that they are hosted off site, but someting to give me an idea what I will see when I click on the link would be helpful.
In general I use search as my memory, so a paragraph explaining where that link goes would be great!
(Sometimes I used openacs.org search, which generally gets me what I want, but not always. Also I get openacs.org email in gmail, so I use that to search forums posts sometimes as well.)
By leveraging the experience of key developers in a way that will not be too onerous, I think we can enhance the new user experience to not only create renewed interest in the toolkit, but also to actually get some useful code put back into the community. Students will learn, but so will mentors.
With your feedback I will post my ideas on curriculum in the coming days.
As these mentorships get rolling, I would like to start developing a curriculum for new developers. What do mentors, students and the community think students need to know to start learning OpenACS? Should we demand prerequisites?
I've also posted to the Wiki a description of the program and its status.
suggest? definitely (and this would include trying to support everything aduni.org did)
provide (or try to)? absolutely. each aduni course can have a wiki page and a q&a forum.
