When it all started…

Did you ever wonder when Dokeos really started to change code on the basis of the Claroline project? Well, Sourceforge’s got an answer for you…

The first commit ever made (by Olivier Brouckaert, like many of the first 2000 commits, I still don’t understand how it is humanly possible) was made on the 23rd of January 2004. So basically, as far as we talk about the code itself, Dokeos is celebrating its 5 years and a month today! Yeah.


The funny thing is that, following SourceForge, Claroline is only traceable up to June the 2nd, 2004 which, if we were to believe that bluntly, would post-date the first commit of Dokeos.

Of course, we all know that Dokeos forked from Claroline in 2004 (don’t we? :o)), and we also know that Claroline started in 2001, following this page

So that would mean the Dokeos code is about 8 years old…

If we are to believe Moodle’s CVS, Moodle’s code started in November, of 2001, as well. I honestly thought it was older, but I guess there’s some non-CVS work pre-dating this.
