Open Source School Information Management System
Are there any would be php programmers here that would be willing to contribute time to help code an open source school information management system (OpenSIMS)?
The OpenSIMS project is bringing together the creators of other open source MIS to help plan the requirements and functions of a single open source os independent school mis.
please join the discussion at Schoolforge-UK MIAS | Google Groups or help expand the wiki at Main Page - OpenSIMS

Edit: Can't read. Sorry. I like the idea but I can't do PHP.

What programming languages can you do?

@penfold_99: In the future, yes. But at the moment I can't commit myself due to lack of time.

Have you ever used cakephp framework?

I have seen it and played about with it over a year ago, but currently use Code Igniter. I can't see it being too much of an obstacle.

In about 6-12 months as I have a couple of other projects on the go at the moment as well as 40hr+ working week.

C# and Java, about 70:30, so I'm more a desktop programmer than anything else. Do let me know if I can be of help though.

Are you working in education at the mo?

I'd be willing to take a nose, as I have a few things I have to code for myself anyway (which should be included in such a system).
One question, isn't SIMS a trademark of Capita? So, having 'Open SIMS' would be a trademark infringement I believe.

Looking at the Google Groups, OpenSIMS doesn't seem to be the final name that has been decided on.

It could but doubt it as there is a precedent with Exchange and OpenExchange (I'm no legal expert). There is also another project called openSIMS (The Open Source Security Infrastructure Management System) they would also need to sue them.

I think OpenSIMS in this context of education could become under fire from legal action from Capita, and lose, due to it being a similar product in the same sector/market.
