GSoC 2013: Moodle Portfolio Plugin for Evernote

It was indeed a dream come true when my proposal was accepted for the Google's annual flagship program, the Google Summer of Code 2013. This is indeed a huge opportunity for me to work with some of the best software developers and also contribute to the dynamic world of open source software. Under this program, I'll be working with Moodle under the guidance of Frédéric Massart.

The project is to develop a Portfolio Plugin for Evernote in Moodle so that the users can upload and share the content in Moodle to their respective Evernote accounts. A large number of people use Evernote in their day-to-day activities, especially people in the education sector. Many teachers and students around the world use Evernote to share their notes. Currently, Moodle has a plugin (repository) from where the users can download their files from Evernote. The Moodle Portfolio plugin currently has plugins for popular services like Google Drive, Flickr, Dropbox, etc. to upload the content to the user's respective accounts on these services, but not for Evernote yet. My task would be to develop the Portfolio plugin for Evernote over a period of next 3 months.

And on top of it, these are exciting times for the Moodle community as well as Moodle 2.5 Stable version has just released. So, all in all, it's an exciting project to work on and I hope to have a great time working with Moodle. Exciting times ahead! :)
