Looking for people to work on some up and coming open source projects

Hi all,

I have been working on ColdBox for about 5 years now, and I know that there is very little out there for open source projects for ColdBox. What I would like to do is to begin to change this, I already have a few things on the go that I have been hoping to get released. However due to the lack of time I haven’t got anywhere close to where I wanted to be.

So I am now looking for others who might wish to contribute to a few of these projects, or even more as I do have a heap of applications and plugin modules that I would like to release over time.

So what am I looking for.

  • Looking for people who are wanting to help bring more applications to ColdBox as open source.
  • People who are also very familiar/willing to learn either jQuery, but more importantly ExtJS.
  • People who are very familiar with ColdFusion 8, but more importantly ColdFusion 9 as these apps will be released initially with ColdFusion 9 and ORM in mind. And if the need arises we will then look at others, especially Railo.
  • Desire to learn or already understand design patterns.
  • Jira and subversion will be used at this stage.

If anyone is interested please contact me off list, I am looking at getting some of these projects started very soon. I have 2 that are partially started, and a core application that these modules can fit into as a testbed.

So if you think you can offer a good deal of time to help, I would love to hear from you. More details to come shortly.

What projects do you have in mind?



Hi Aaron I currently have been working on the following


Which I began as a phpBB clone, but I am not sure I want to go the full hog, and


As a small social community that will have modules added over time, like a blog (which I am sort of 30% into) and as you can see a forum module.

This is what I have started so far.
