If you are interested in the progress of LimeSurvey 2 and having input, please stay in touch with these students and the linked project page so you can contribute your ideas, suggestions and assistance as Pieter-Jan and Maarten's work progresses.

Amit (left) is building a new question type for LimeSurvey 1, the much demanded File Upload Question. This has been on the wishlist of thousands of users for years, and I imagine there will be a lot of interest as his work comes along. Amit will be mentored by LimeSurvey's Project Leader Carsten Schmitz (c_schmitz) with assistance from Marcel Minke (mazi). As with the LimeSurvey 2 project, contributions from the wider community will be welcome and important.

Amit is a Senior Undergraduate student of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.

The next few weeks are a time where our students can start getting involved with the LimeSurvey community, so do please say hello to them if you're online at the IRC channel!
