Coding begins!

Today marked the beginning of Google's Summer of Code 2010 and the beginning of real code work on iDreamwidth, the eventual iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad client for Dreamwidth on the Apple App Store. After a hectic last few weeks at Cornell with finals (on everything from prescribing appropriate anti-psychotics and psychotherapy to writing a multi-core honeypot analysis kernel), I'm very excited to relax with some work on a personal coding project where I have a little more control over the process ^^


iDreamwidth has a codebase home!

In other news, for my own ease in combining the source code storage, documentation, and bug reports into one easily accessible site, iDreamwidth will be hosted at Google Code for the summer. Once a release candidate version has been created near the end of July, the code base, documentation, and bug tracking may be moved to a more official home in the official Dreamwidth codebase and tools. The site can be found below and will be updated in the next week with more information about the project (though major announcements will also be made on this page still ^^)

http://code.google.com/p/idreamwidth/


iDreamwidth requires alpha testers!

And speaking of alpha testers, iDreamwidth is looking for some users who are unafraid of buggy student software!

As an alpha tester, you'll be able to see iDreamwidth's development from the ground up and be able to give your input into how it looks and responds by being able to put a version of the current build onto YOUR iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. You'll be able to submit bug reports, give reviews of different features, and suggest improvements you would like to see in the next week's build!

Due to limitations in the iPhone Developer program, only a limited number will be able to alpha test iDreamwidth. Therefore, not everyone who applies may be accepted. If interested, send in the following application information below to idreamwidth@gmail.com. Alpha tester applications will remain open to June 11th, but acceptance will be done on a rolling basis (i.e. if you want in, apply early ^^)

Alpha Tester Application

1. Name, Dreamwidth username, and primary email address
2. Device (i.e. iPhone(3G/S), iPod Touch, or iPad?) and Software Version*
3. Device's UDID**
4. Do you think you'll be able to file bug reports/reviews/comments on the iDreamwidth support site (http://code.google.com/p/idreamwidth/) for weekly alpha releases?

* To determine your software version, simply go to the Settings on your device and navigate through General -> About -> Version.

** In order to determine your UDID, you'll need to connect your device to iTunes on your computer. If connected successfully, iTunes should open up and have your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad listed under Devices. Click on your device and make sure that you are on the "Summary" tab. You should see information such as name, capacity, software version, etc listed on this page. Look for a field called "Identifier". It should be found below "Software Version". Click on "identifier" and you should see a long alphanumeric code listed in the Identifier field. Additionally the Identifier field should change to "Identifier (UDID)". This is the string you'll need to provide.
So, looks like I've been given one of the golden tickets ^^ I'm really looking forward to starting work on this project! For anyone who hasn't read over the proposal, feel free to read it up on the GSoC site or at the following address (http://www.xerxes.co.nr/src/Dreamwidth_Proposal.pdf). If you have any comments about features you think I left out, things you hate on iPhone apps, etc, I'd love to hear about it.

Unfortunately, I have to keep this post short due to a big prelim on computer organization tomorrow -_-;; Study, study, study...
Annyeong haseyo! I'm Xerxes, one of the applicants for Google's Summer of Code 2010. Specifically, I'm looking at working on the mobile client of Dreamwidth for usage on the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad devices.

A little about myself: I'm a rising undergraduate senior at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, majoring in Computer Science and Psychology. The eldest of four, I've spent most of my life moving around the world due to my father's job as a US Naval aviator. Specifically, I've lived in Florida, Washington State, California, the Netherlands, New York, and Washington DC. My personal interests are in computer programming, robotics, anime, Korea, and aviation.

Anyways, you can view my proposal here:

Feel free to comment on it and give feedback on what features you'd like to see in a mobile application!
