One of the reported shortcomings of CiviCRM has been the perceived "lack of reporting functionality". This is true to a large extent, but our hope was that most folks would either use
  • Traditional reporting solutions: BIRT, Jasper Reports and/or Crystal Reports. We demoed an integration with BIRT a few releases back, but this did not get any traction. There are a couple of larger deployments that have built custom reports using BIRT and Jasper.
  • Views2 and CiviCRM integration. However the lack of grouping / sub-total functionality has prevented this from being a complete reporting solution. This is also a drupal only solution
  • Custom Drupal modules / Joomla components. Quite a few folks have gone down this path, but there has not been a lot of sharing of these reports within the community
Based on the success of Custom Search, we decided that shipping CiviCRM with a few good... Read more

Google has once again continued their commitment to open source technology through the annual Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program. The program runs from April through September and awards students a stipend for working on and completing qualified open source projects. The program provides students a valuable opportunity to get involved in real-life development projects while introducing them to the world of open source.

Google works with approved mentor organizations who in turn review and approve proposed projects and students. The organizations then assign mentors who will guide the student through the development process, serve as a resource, and review the student’s work at various stages.

CiviCRM is excited to have two GSoC projects approved through Joomla!. Considering that Joomla! was awarded a total of 18 funded projects through Google, it is significant that...

Thanks to the invitation from Joomla! and their kind sharing of the precious student slots, CiviCRM was able to participate in last year’s Google Summer of Code, with the GSoC project adding multilingual support to CiviCRM.

We hope to participate in the Google Summer of Code again this year. If we are accepted, personal applications begin on March 23rd, but we would very much like to hear from interested students before – please reply/discuss in this forum topic if interested (and make sure to read the GSoC FAQ first). We’ll make sure to keep you in the loop as things progress.

If you know any students in your personal network who might be interested in this great opportunity to expand and exercise their technical skills while contributing to the non-profit sector - please...
