This is my first Google Code-in experience. First of all i’ll tell you something about GCI.
Google Code-in is an annual programming competition hosted by Google Inc. that allows pre-university students to complete tasks specified by various, partnering open source organizations.
I really like this competition, because everyone can do something and also we can expand our knowledge in new technologies. I learned lots of things in tech and also things beyond tech form this competition
In this competition I choose my tasks from a great organization called FOSSASIA. You should have heard about it. But I’ll tell you some brief description about FOSSASIA,
FOSSASIA is a non-profit organization supporting developers and makers of Free and Open Source technologies. It was founded in 2009 by Hong Phuc Dang and Mario Behling. The aim of FOSSASIA is to develop and adapt open technologies for social change with a focus on Asian users. The FOSSASIA Summit takes place annually one month after the Lunar New Year. Projects at FOSSASIA range from open hardware, to design, graphics and software. FOSSASIA offers resources to various open-source projects and organizes an annual Open Technology Summit for students, developers and start ups.
The FOSSASIA Summit is the top Free and Open Source technology event in Asia for developers, start-ups, and contributors. It is a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experience about open source technologies and meet interesting contributors. FOSSASIA has its headquarters in Singapore, in the NUS Plug-In@Blk71 building.
We’ll look at some other pretty cool projects of FOSSASIA.
Susi is a personal assistant which utilities the concept of artificial intelligence to provide assistance to users. It is capable of plugging into social networks and messengers such as Twitter to obtain large amounts of data. An Android app for Susi is currently in the early stages of development, and its aim is to provide a conversational interface with users by replying the user with intelligent answers. Susi AI is fully customizable and developed by a community of developers.
2.Flappy SVG Game
Flappy SVG was modeled after the popular 2013 mobile application, Flappy Bird. It is an obstacle-based game where users can add their own characters, levels and various functionalities. Flappy SVG is available for download on the Google Play Store.
The Open Event Project by FOSSASIA is designed to facilitate the organisation of an event by streamlining the processes of event-planning, marketing, publishing and ticket sales. There are four components to the entire project, namely, the Open Event Format Definition, the Open Event Orga Server, the Open Event Android App Generator, as well as the Open Event Web App Generator. The Open Event Project was initially started to provide support for the organisation of the annual FOSSASIA Summit, and has been maintained by the FOSSASIA community ever since.
As a task I could do some interesting things with open event project. So i saw the awesome features of the project. As I said before about the open event project I will show some screenshot here about what i did.I deployed the open event web app generator in my computer as well as in heroku. That is how I start to know about it.
When doing some tasks, I had a chance to join FOSSASIA Community…
Because of those things I could meet many developers, programmers, and lot of tech guys all around the world. I met some good friends also. Now my community is expanded. Also there were very good mentors, who were very kind and always helpful. I take this blog as a chance to thank all of them and fossasia for everything.
