It's time I started blogging about my Google Summer of Code project with Freifunk.
To begin, let me introduce myself. I am Arne, computer science student at TU Berlin and pursuing my Bachelor's degree. This is my first GSoC -- and the first time I contribute to an Open Source software project, so, naturally, I'm pretty excited to get to know the process.
My project includes extending OpenWRT/LEDE's...

I'm Anu Vazhayil, exchange student at University of Paderborn from India. I am one of the Google Summer of Code participant for the project qaul.net.
Qaul.net is a mesh network communication app which can be run in Linux, OSX, Windows and Android. It...
Please allow me to introduce the poWquty Project within Google Summer of Code 2016 at Freifunk.
The big picture behind this project relates to the energy production and consumption. Sustainable energy production and consumption are crucial for a prospering life on earth. The importance of energy led many theorists to even define the level of civilization by its energy profile. With the renewable energies shift the energy production paradigm from...
I'm Matthias (aka NeoRaider), and this year, I'll participate in the Google Summer of Code for the Freifunk project.
The goal of my project is to develop an alternative to the UCI configuration system, as UCI has a number of issues that make it cumbersome to use in some situations.
One of the basic issues of UCI that affects many Freifunk (or generally community mesh) firmwares is the upgrade behaviour. Mesh firmwares usually contain elaborate default configurations,...

I am Tobias, a Computer Science student at the TU-Berlin. I am glad to have the opportunity to participate at GSoC for Freifunk this year.
My project aims at making the handling with access points in OpenWrt/LEDE easier. The goal is defined as follows: Find an easily configurable solution (with reasonable defaults) for making the wireless access SSID in OpenWrt/LEDE dependent on a set of network conditions.
What does that...

I will contribute to one of the Freifunk projects; nodewatcher, via Google Summer of Code this summer and I wanted to keep you updated on my progress as well as exchange thoughts about my ideas.
First of all, nodewatcher is an open source, modular community oriented platform used for network planning, node deployment, node monitoring and maintenance. nodewatcher was initially developed to be primarily used by...

my name is Katharina (aka spacekookie) and I am one of the Google Summer of Code participants for Freifunk projects; qaul.net in particular.
I wanted to write up a short article on what it is I will be doing this summer, how I will do it and what I hope to achieve. This will be one of three articles published on this blog.
Qaul.net provides a mesh-wifi network for people to connect and share information to other people on the network. Like...
