Name: Jorge Emyr Vazquez Juarez
Background: I have been playing and learning about opensource since I was 15 unfortunately I've never had the chance to participate within any project. Currently I'm studying a career in Computer Sciences at Mexico City at National Polytechnic Institute (IPN). I do have some programming skills, also learning new languages is not a problem for me, my preferred language is C but I can also do Java, Python, php and even if i DONT like it .NET. I'm not an expert scripting in bash but i know how it works, I've been developing some web interfaces mainly for school projects using jquery and codeigniter frameworks. Have heard about django and pyramid, I'm aware about their capabilities but I haven't used them myself. I've been working with Linux for almost 5 years, but I'd love to learn more about it, i think that I don't know so much about Linux internals but one of my personal goals is to learn how it works. I'm always open to learn anything new and when it comes to teach other people what I've learned I just enjoy it. I have been working with Virtual Machines for some time, and I think that I could make something else than just setting up some machines. It seems very attractive to me developing an interface to make things easier for other people.
Project title: Virtual Image creation web interface
Project details: The main goal is to develop an interface similar to SUSE Studio.
Synopsis: Develop the interface for users to create VMs from a web interface, similar to SUSE studio.
Benefits to Debian: This project could provide an easy interface for users to create VMs in the cloud.
Deliverables: Develop an easy to use web interface, functional, and if possible light weight.
Interfaces designed and modelled
Documentation about project fully read
Tentative interfaces finished, coded, and working, first version
Using the chosen framework effectively
Tentative interactive package selection coded and working
Changed tentative interfaces, second version
Interfaces and package selection bug fixed
Generating descriptor on server
First script generating image from descriptor
Generating image from descriptor in background fully working
Scripts fully working and integrated to Web Interface
File uploading fully working from web interface
Almost ready for releasing probably ready for testing
Recovering users feedback
Exams and other commitments: I dont think I'm having any exam.
Other summer plans: Actually my plans for the summer were to stay at home playing some videogames or something like that. not getting married, not on vacation, and I'm feeling like start coding.
Why Debian?: I love Linux and OpenSource and Debian is both.
Are you applying for other projects in SoC? Well, I'm thinking about applying for joomla, maybe gnome and the honeynet project.
