 Slack, Mattermost, Gitter and other chat platforms

The Fluid community has considered migrating to newer chat platforms but every time the general opinion has been that they are not as accessible as IRC or only offer features we depend on (e.g. public records) for paid users. A consensus on this topic has never been reached.

    Hello Sir,

    I am Ashish Kumar, currently pursuing B.Tech(CSE), 3rd year from Jaypee Instititute of Information Technology, Noida, India. I am a Open source contributer and a proficient Web Developer, I want to start contributing to Inclusive Design Institute Organisation and for this I am looking through a project in Google Summer Of Code. 

    Project Name inclusively design and build a game for kids
    Project LinkGoogle Summer of Code 2018 with the Fluid Project#InclusivelyDesign&BuildaGameforKids

    As you are potential mentors for this project(as mentioned on website), so can you please guide me for it as i have a few questions regarding this 

    1.) would you like to mention the age group of kids for whom we want to design and develop the game?
    2.) it would be great help for me if you can share some of the present examples of this project so that i could get a clear vision.

    Hoping for a positive response.
    Thanking You!!

  4. Hi, I'm Ravi Mahfunda from Telkom University, Indonesia.

    Currently studying at Informatics Engineering and I'm in the second year of it.

    I'm focusing on Game Development and moderate of web and mobile development.

    I want to join inclusively design and build a game for kids project as my Google Summer of Code projects.

    I interested in the topic of making a Game Design for disabled children.


    And there are so much I wanna ask about it

    Further information would be helping.

  5. A general point to start is that this is not an appropriate space to leave questions regarding GSoC. Please contact the mentors on the IRC channel or fluid-work mailing list. See the Get Involved page for ways of communicating.


    Ravi Mahfunda  please see the previous replies from Jess Mitchell for ways to get in touch with the mentor.

    Respected Mam, 

    I am Ashish Sah, currently completing my BCA. I am a passionate front-end developer. I want to contribute to the project

    Project Name :  Inclusively Design & Build a Game for Kids

    I can contribute the team for building the game and also for getting some good and creative Idea. I am ready to face many challenges even excited to learn many things. 

    This is my first time that I tried participating in GSoC, So there are few things I am not able to understand. I am expecting a help in few of my questions:

    1) Where we will be discussing all the ideas about the games we will be building?

    2) Do I need to mention anything else about this project?

  16. Hello sir,

    I am Utkarsh Shukla. I am a 4th year B.Tech student from SRMCEM, Lucknow, India in Computer Science Branch. 

    I am contributing to the projects of the Inclusive design that are

    1. AChecker
    2. vidyo-webrtc-sample

    I have made some pull requests and created some issues. I am very much interested in the AChecker project, because it is one of the amazing project by the inclusive design and has v=much scope of renovation. I was thinking about maintaining it and implementing some new technologies in that project. 

    Hopefully looking forward for a help from your side. In the form of mentoring, guiding and correcting the mistakes.

    Thank You,

    Where to share my proposal for review.

    I am working on the android game part of your project as I have created similar games for PETA and other organisations as an interactive games for kids to understand simple day-to-day concepts.

    I have been trying to contact idi@ocadu.ca for some time but unable to reach.I have developed almost every bit of the project but do understand that community-bonding is an important matter when working with a team and therefore ask to have a look at it for better understanding and more creative ideas.

    Thanks
