Was ist das?
Die beiden Werkzeuge LinkSink und Calcifer sind nun einsatzbereit. Mit LinkSink können wir für Freifunk Links zu unseren Themen zusammentragen und daraus RSS-Feeds erstellen. Durch Kategorisierung und Hinzufügen von Tags können wir damit sehr flexibel RSS-Feeds zu bestimmten Themen bereitstellen und bei vorhandenen Mediendateien sogar diese einbinden. Calcifer kann man...

This is the final blogpost for my GSoC project for the Freifunk-API Query Client.
We want a comfortable tool to query all the Freifunk API files as there are nearly 100 communities all over Germany providing their data. There are already several applications like our community map, a common calendar, our feed aggrator or the community podcast collector. But it's still hard to find communities by properties like routing protocols or focus topics...
Hi everybody, this is going to be my last blog post as a participant of GSOC2014. I'm very sad about this, those have been very hard worked months but very formative.
I improved both my coding skills but above all I have earned a work methodology thanks to my mentor Federico, who said to me to be more reflexive and to be more precise in what I do.
I have learnt some aspect of versioning (Git) I ignored before and learned much more on Python than I did by myself.
This is the...

Because I have worked very hard in the first part of GSoC, the implementation was almost done already for mid term, in the second part I have been mostly testing the code, and taking advantage of it in a lot of setups :)
The GSoC experience have been very formative to me and I would like to repeat it next year either as student or mentor :)
Moreover I'll suggests to apply to GSoC to a lot of friends!
Many thanks to Freifunk to chose my proposal I hope you will...
I am very happy to have participated do GSoC 2014, this experience have permitted to me to learn a lot about opensorce comminity and programming, i have learned also Lua programming language, while it seemed a little ugly to me in the firsts times I ended up loving it.
This GSoC project permits to people installing Libre-Mesh on their devices and have device specific quirks already solved by the hardware detection module, without user intervention...

During Google Summer of Code i did these things:
- learn what users expect from a social network. Figure out who should receive which messages.
- map social network functions on the existing Retroshare General Exchange System
- build a backend with basic features
- build a frontend with basic features
- started a new programming interface on top of libretroshare: a JSON over http interface
The Secushare homepage says: "...
Content is obviously the most important element of a social network. Currently only support for plain text is implemented. The content can have an author, but this is not required.
Future: It would be nice to have support for images. This is very easy on the backend side, but it needs a frontend which scales the image to fit on the screen. With Retroshares file transfer capabilities it would also be possible to publish large files like audio and video files. It would be nice to...

Here is my final post for the Google Summer of Code 2014. I managed to finish
my implementation of source-sensitive routing in Babel, and here is a complete
review of the project :
I. Introduction and Background
1. The Packets
Data on the Internet is transmitted by packet switching, this means that data
is cut in several packets and each...
