My name is Josh, and I'm a junior in high school in New York. I've been coding for several years now, and I have experience in a multitude of programming languages, including php. This is really my first time contributing to the open source community and I am very excited!
Here is the description of my task:
Upgrade a Joomla! 1.0 component to work in Joomla! 1.5 natively.
Select a GNU/GPL Joomla! component that works in 1.0 but for which there is
no 1.5 compatible version available. Upgrade it so it works in Joomla! 1.5
without requiring legacy mode. For each change you make document what the
change is and why it is required.
It is advisable to select a fairly small component for this task. It is not
necessary to completely refactor the component, for example, into an MVC
* Knowledge of PHP
* Upgraded component code.
* Document as described above.
All code must be created using the GNU General Public License version 2.
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-license ... .html#SEC4
Documentation written for this task must be made available under the
Joomla! Electronic Documentation License.
Extra Credit (optional)
Contact the original author(s) of the component and talk to them about what
you are doing. Report back on the response you received.
I'm really looking forward to working on this. I just have one question: is there any component in particular that anyone would like to see upgraded, or one that anyone would recommend? Thanks!
