This is to introduce the Wandering Books GSoC project that is starting
today. Martijn Faassen is the mentor, and I am the student.
Our goal is to implement a full-fledged multi-lingual sample app for
Grok/Zope 3, documenting and extending the framework as needed.
The app to be developed is an engine for http://WanderingBooks.org, a
site designed to make it easy for anyone to turn their personal book
collections into circulating libraries. The engine will e called Kirbi
and will eventually be deployed at WanderingBooks.org (in English) and
Circulante.org (in Portuguese).
WanderingBooks.org currently runs a prototype built with Horde/PHP
which will be replaced by the new Kirbi built with Grok/Zope 3.
Circulante.org will provide the case study for my Library Sciences degree.
More information about the project, in English, can be found here:
Here is the 2007 GSoC application for this project:
And this is the more detailed 2006 GSoC application:
I am very excited about the opportunity to work with Martijn and to
contribute to Grok and Zope 3.
