New developer in Dokeos – Herodoto

Herodoto is joining the Dokeos development team as an independent (and distant) developer today. He will be in charge of integrating the wiki tool, under my coaching. The wiki was previously a separate plugin in Dokeos, so we hope it will be stabilised and integrated in time for 1.8.6 at the beginning of October.

Herodoto (aka Juan Carlos) has already contributed a few patches to Dokeos in the past and he has a series of good idea to improve Dokeos’ messaging system overall (combine and improve forum, announcement, dropbox and the messaging plugin all together).

Depending on his contributions in the future, we might encourage such new blood to join Dokeos in the next months, to help in the move to Dokeos 2.0, by having experienced developers coaching them.
