Google Summer of Code has come to an end and it was an interesting experience for me at Joomla! My project was about implementing cloud storage support for Amazon Simple Storage Service, Rackspace and Google Cloud Storage.
A couple of months ago I wrote an article about my Google Summer of Code project, which aimed to add microdata semantics in the Joomla CMS. Now lets take a closer look at the status of this project to see what has been done.
Every time I needed to create a new website, the first option that sprang to mind was always Joomla!. So it came natural to get involved and help with the development of the open-source project that in turn helped me so much when I needed it.
I am a Achal Aggarwal from India entitled as "GSOCer" or better I form it "JGSOCer" for 2013 summer. I am all set to code away this summer with Joomla. I am working on form field library so that it match up with standards of HTML5 and can provide developers an option to deisgn form elements in a more descriptive way.
Automated Testing uses one computer program to test another computer program. In Joomla, we use PHP test programs to test our PHP Joomla code. With automated tests, we can run a set of tests repeatedly, and as often as we like.
I'm so pleased to be a part of Joomla community in this summer and help out with development while obtaining a great exposure to the open source and web development areas. Through this project I would like to help out Joomla users as well as the developers to get the maximum out of the Joomla modules.
