    Evaluation week went well. Actually we (our team and some BuddyPress hackers like Kunal and Francesco) managed to test the existing progress and even squashed some bugs, all this during an IRC evaluation meetup (logs: start, end).

    Now I can say that I achieved the results I was targeting for midterm, and by far I’m happy with them. I also had a chat with John from UI team, will finish a report on UI/UX requirements I need during the upcoming week. A dashboard mockup I target to achieve can be found here, but first I will ask Jeremy for some UX feedback (we had some thoughts regarding some functionalities with Boone).

    Now I’m working on Gradebook, and I target for a release this weekend. Once It’s ready, I will start working on some interesting and unusual hacks for my project, like:

    • Get the groups search integration with my Courseware content
    • Pagination for content

    Hey kids. It’s midterm week! What does this mean?

    • Your project should now be a working, functioning product. (For those of you working on a variety of patches, you should have a large collection of approved/applied patches.) The second half of the summer term is intended for UI work, testing, optimization, revision, documentation, integration, etc. If you have not finished your major features yet, you are behind.
    • Your mentor will be evaluating your work for the sake of moving forward. If you Pass, Google will give you money, and you will move on to the second half of the term. If you Fail, you will not be paid and will not move on to the second half of the term.
    • You will also need to evaluate your mentor. A couple of you have already done so, but for everyone else, log in to the gsoc site, and there will be a red link in the lower left hand nav for you to fill out the evaluation.
    • Each passing student will be given a one-hour time slot next week for an IRC-based presentation of the project to date, so the community can ask questions, give feedback, etc. Please leave any notes on your availability and current time zone in a comment on this post. Each failing student will be contacted to find out what we could have done better to help you pass, if it was not simply a result of taking on too much at once.
    • UI Review. Some of the bigger projects have already gotten in touch about getting UI help in the second half of term. There will be a UI review of every project, even if no help was requested, to ensure that any admin UI is congruent with the WordPress UI. For those projects big enough to need full-on design help, we’ll get you some design help from the UI group.
    • If there’s anything you’re working on that you haven’t shown your mentor, make sure you do so today! If your mentor has not seen the code, then it doesn’t exist, as far as evaluations go, so please, get your mentor access to your latest code!

      I am not available Monday for a chat. Any other day is fine but preferably afternoon or evening would be better. I am in eastern time zone (UTC-5/-4). http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=179

      “Your project should now be a working, functioning product.”

      I need to get to work then. I’m pretty close to done, but there are still a few things that are in need of attention. Pagination for the comments is the big thing, as far as I know. It’s a bit…flaky at the moment.

      Anyway, I’m not available on Thursdays. I can probably do any other day, preferably in the 3-5PM range. (Eastern Time, daylight savings)

      Afternoons Monday through Friday work for me (i.e. 12-6pm CDT / UTC -5).

      Available all days, but one day I can sleep at night another day I can sleep in the day…
      But usually I am accessible ( and with fresh mind ) between 14 and 20 at UTC +3
      In any case, just say the day and time when will be “my hour” and I’ll be then.

      I’ll take an exam on monday morning and I’ll know only there the date and the time of the oral exam (professor said it will be on next week for sure but still hasn’t decided), so probably it’s better to schedule when here (CEST – UTC+2) is evening to make sure the two things don’t collide. Every evening is good other than friday.

      I would prefer thursday or friday to give my IRC presentation (any hour).

      Timezone info http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=262, availability 24/7 😉

      I’m available Monday through Friday EST (UTC-5). Afternoons are preferred, as would be 9-5.

      An afternoon (EST) later in the week (Thurs/Fri) would be best for me.

        Any time after 1700 IST to 0300 IST ( +5.30 UTC ). I hadn’t realized that you’d asked for times as comments — sorry for the late reply. Perhaps on the same day as the BuddyPress Dev meeting? Before/after that?
