Google Code-In participation and the port
In the light of recent events we are happy to announce that the LimeSurvey project will participate in Google Code-In 2011 (GCIN). Two prospective GCIN partipicants contacted us and are very eager to help port LimeSurvey to the new PHP framework. After collecting all requirements for our future PHP framework and after these two students helped us to do a Proof-of-Concept base port of the admininstration login/main menu/global settings we decided that we will use Yii as future framework for LimeSurvey. It has a very vibrant community, is really fast and offers every comfort in addition to our requirements.
So far it looks like we will be able to port huge parts of LimeSurvey during the GCIN contest and that means that the LimeSurvey project in general is moving with full speed again. Yay!
