UK MoodleMoot 06 hackfest
Monday 24th July, 2006
Welcommen zum Hackfest (OK - I've been watching too much WorldCup on TV).
The first MoodleMoot hackfest is nearly upon us... and we don't have an agenda!
This is an open source agenda for the hackfest. We'll have a day before the Moot to geek out on some code, maybe develop a feature or two, fix some bugs and generally make our favorite learning system a happier place. But I leave it up to you to tell me exactly what we should do. We have four or five rooms with internet connections, a few projectors, and I'll try to get pizza.
Let's start by brainstorming some ideas here for a few days. If someone posts something you're interested in, put your name under it as a vote. The top votes become our central organizing ideas. For example
1 Bug fixing
Let's spend a few hours and hunt down as many outstanding bugs in 1.6 as possible. Bounties for most bugs killed, trickiest bug killed, and most unusual bug killed.
- Jason Cole
- martin langhoff (auth & enrolment specifically).
- Martin Dougiamas
(iarenaza) I won't be there, but here are a couple of bugs for Martin L., related to auth: #4648 and #5373. Very easy to fix :-)
2 What next for the quiz module?
If any other quizzy people are there, we should have a talk about where we see the quiz module going.
I/the OU have the following priorities:
- Make question type plugins really plug-in-able. At the moment there are some limitations:
- All the lang strings are still in lang/en_utf8/quiz.php.
- pluggable qtypes and pluggable inport/export filters don't play nicely together.
- Write some new question types.
- Make some improvements to existing question types.
- Get RQP working again, so our in-house question engine can talk to Moodle.
- Tim Hunt
Pick a (memory|database) hog and put it on a diet.
- martin langhoff
(iarenaza) Once again, I won't be there, but here's an unfixed bug in 1.6.x and HEAD (was fixed in 1.5.x, but not applied to HEAD at the moment): bug #4591
Hacking on the OLPC Board
(MartinL) I will be bringing the OLPC board (if it is booting, and customs allows!) for people to have a play with it. If we have any Mozilla/XUL experts in the house, I want to explore building a limited cached Moodle UI with it for offline work.
Add your suggestion here ...
Go on, you know you want to.
