[sip-comm-dev] Collaboration with lab-couse in Tartu, Friend2Friend-computing plugin


#1

Hi all,
sorry Emil, that I did not wait for your answer and now write to the list. But
I got an allowance for a special amount for visiting the FOSDEM, and I have
to evaluate soon, if there is any interest in collaboration to be able to
book still a reasonable cheap flight ticket to Brussels.

Following is basically the text I sent to Emil:

I am a lecturer of the university of Tartu and next term I will arrange a lab
course on p2p computing. We would like to base our project on the
sip-communicator and extend or branch it or write a plugin for our needs and
of course fix bugs we are stumbling on.

Here is the abstract from the course announcement, taken from
http://www.dougdevel.org/p2pgrid/:

==========
Friend2Friend-computing

P2P systems start to grow more and more common in our daily computer
experience. Communication (i.e. skype, googletalk, jabber) and file-sharing
(i.e. bit-torrent, gnutella) systems can be formed spontaneously and with
minimal installation effort. If file-sharing and communication can be easily
distributed in a P2P-manner, why not your computational power as in
computational GRIDs? In this lab-course we will take an existing P2P client
and develop an extension or plugin to run computational intensive
applications in spontaneously formed workgroups. In the course we will
simulate a complete software-development cycle in a team and will teach
practical knowledge in project management, requirements analysis, software
design, programming, software maintenance and documentation.

Already 13 students registered for this course, and we hope that we will reach
about 20 until the mid of February.
As I would like to contribute to your project, I would like to discuss, how
this could be done best.

Best wishes from the cold north
Uli

Hello Ulrich,

Sounds great! And the fact that you are planning on coming to FOSDEM 07 sounds even better as we would be able to meet and chat more about this.

Your proposition sounds very interesting and we'd be glad to hear more about it.

Cheers
Emil
