Tamil Software Development Program
There are lot of software required in Tamil Linguistic World.
Planning for a Program like Google Summer of Code to encourage developers for developing software for Tamil.
Program Details :
1. List the required software:
List the software requirements related to Tamil, so that Developer can pick one from work on that.
The software can be Desktop application, Mobile Application, Online application or a game.
send the requirements to tshrinivasan AT gmail.com or comment below.
The Event duration is 4 months. Don’t give big software like OCR, TTS, Speech to Text etc.
Give small games, small components required to build big software etc.
2. Forming a Mentor team:
Not all developers are good at Tamil Linguistic and grammar. We have to form a Mentor team with Tamil Scholars. Developers can contact them for any queries related to Tamil.
Contact me if you are interested to be a Mentor.
3. Call for Programmers:
Programmers, from around the globe, can participate in this program.
They can be students, working professionals, Home makers, kids etc.
They can pick their desired software from the list.
They can work as a team or as individual.
All software developed should be Free/Open Source Software from day one.
All code should be published in http://github.com
Developers should write dev log on their blogs atleast weekly once.
At the end of 4 months, we can review the developed software and package them for release.
We can call for Donations for the projects. Divide the amount and share with the developers.
Need a team to handle Finance. They have to approach donors, collect money and share with the Developers.
