GSoC: Improving nodewatcher data representation capability(final report) SL


This summer was really exciting because it was my first Google Summer of Code! I worked for Freifunk, a non-commercial initiative for free wireless networks. I would like to thank them for the opportunity to expand my programming skills and a great summer. I am excited that I got around to use Git on a serious multi-developer project and even create my first pull request. I developed a strong affection for Docker, which I now use for personal projects as well. After 5 years of programming in Python I am happy to add Django to my programming skill set.

GSoC: Improving nodewatcher data representation capability (week 1) SL

I am a student of computer science, but most of my knowledge comes from my diy projects. I am a jack of all trades kind of a guy; I have tinkered with low level stuff like add-ons and fpgas, but I also worked with everything UE4 gaming engine, blender and other high level programs. I like creating visual things such as music visualizations, graphs and other more interactive ways of displaying data. This summer I will help improve the visualization capabilities of nodewatcher.

GSoC 2017 - HMAC signing of Nodewatcher data and IPv6 support for Tunneldigger SL


I am a student at Faculty of Computer and Information Science in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Like (almost) every "computer enthusiast" I liked gaming and later found myself developing an OpenGL graphics engine. All engrossed in C++ and all sorts of algorithmic challenges I slowly came to realize that something is missing. Yes, my knowledge of anything network related. So, combining my two other interests, those being information security and inexplicable love of tunnels, I applied myself to Google Summer Of Code with the following ideas. As a participant in this year's Google Summer of Code I will develop some new goodies for two projects of wlan slovenija open wireless network.

Participate in Google Summer of Code 2016 SL

This year wlan slovenija is again participating in Google Summer of Code. If you are a student and you search for programming summer work for this summer, you can apply to work on wlan slovenija projects and get $5500 for a successful contribution.

wlan slovenija is a open wireless network initiative from Slovenija, building a common, open and independent network for everybody. It is participating under Freifunk umbrella so you have to formally apply there. Prepare proposal of your contribution and submit it until March 25. We suggest that you submit the proposal draft immediately and then work on improving it until the deadline. In this way you will be in the system soon and will not miss the deadline. Furthermore, mentors will be able to comment and work with you through the system on your proposal. Moreover, we suggest that you join our chat and connect with the community and get help with your proposals.

You can check the list of ideas for proposals to get a feeling of what we are looking for. But of course, you can propose also something completely yours.

Battlemesh v9 in Portugal SL

This year's Wireless Battle Mesh will be in Porto, Portugal, May 1-7 2016.

The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims at bringing together people from across Europe and beyond to test the performance of different routing protocols for mesh networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, IEEE 802.11s, OLSR. It is a tournament with a social character. If you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an interest in mesh networks and related technologies, this event is for you.

The traditional goal of the event is to set-up hands-on testbed for each available mesh routing protocol with a standard test procedure for the different mesh networks. During the event, similar hardware and software configuration is used based on the OpenWrt and packages for each protocol implementation. The event is also a great opportunity to develop testing tools for PHY/MAC radio layers (drivers, scripts and PHY analyzers). Alongside the testing of routing protocols, a number of talks, workshops, and hackathons are held on various mesh-related topics, all from technology to community and social aspects of mesh networks.

Access points for refugees in Vrhnika SL

We in wlan slovenija were contacted by volunteers in refuge center Vrhnika to establish Internet connection for refugees living there. Using our technology we enabled them communication with loved ones back home and access to much needed information about what is happening and how to continue their travel.

If you are a volunteer and interested in organizing something similar in a center near you, or you a neighbor to one of the centers, turn to our chat channel and maybe we can do something together also there.

Deploying open WiFi nodes for refugees SL

wlan slovenija open wireless network has started deploying open WiFi access points for refugees on border crossing with Slovenia where they are regularly stranded for days while waiting to cross the border. Without access to information and ways to communicate with friends and family their situation becomes even harder.

Thank you everyone who helps. The response is enormous. We are now in process of preparing a connectivity kit which could be easily duplicated elsewhere.

You can help us as well. If you have 3G or LTE USB modems you can donate, contact us. Also if you live near border crossing or other areas where refugees are stationed, consider sharing part of your Internet connection in a safe way with refugees by deploying a wlan slovenija open WiFi node. We can help you.
