Who wants to work with me and @dajbelshaw, developing the #ActivityPub based #federated back-end for #MoodleNet?

We're looking for a #developer familiar with #Elixir (or transferable skills like #Erlang and #RubyOnRails).

The whole project will be #FOSS and you can work from home, what's not to love ;-) Please RT!

While the suggested language is great for some projects, MoodleNet is not that project, because you need to consider the deployability of each instance and the availability of programmers world wide and amongst existing Moodle partners. Please reconsider your choice of programming language, PHP fits both these real world criteria, followed by Python.

You may have noticed me doing research about the technology stacks being used by #ActivityPub apps, this is because I'm involved in a couple federated projects (both of which are new use cases, and extending the #ActivityStreams format).

One of those (current dayjob) is #MoodleNet (for educators to curate educational resources together), and we now decided to use #Elixir for the back-end, which I explain in detail here:

https://docs.moodle.org/dev/MoodleNet/tech/stack

I'm open for feedback & collaboration requests!

I'm away for a bit, but if you're an #Elixir dev, you should keep an eye on @mayel's timeline for an upcoming opportunity on the #MoodleNet team. https://moodle.com/moodlenet

Enjoying using a beta version of Changemap from @joshsharp with the #MoodleNet project. Community can submit suggesitons directly or, as in this example, I can collect it from several places in one thread: https://changemap.co/moodle/moodlenet/task/2302-feedback-on-ux-milestone-2/

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been working on UX Milestone 2 with Outlandish. This is the fourth and final screencast from that work, in which we demonstrate how we envisage sending a MoodleNet collection to a Moodle site might work.

#MoodleNet UX Milestone 2: Screencast #2

https://blog.moodle.net/2018/ux-milestone-2-screencast-2/

This workflow is all about adding an 'Alt account'. It would be interesting to hear from Fediverse users as to whether this would be a useful feature for MoodleNet (which will be based on ActivityPub).

What are the benefits? Drawbacks?

At the start of the video, you say your example user Jeremy can have an alternative LGBT profile if they are not comfortable telling people, and at the end of the video you say pictured question mark allows you - who, how and how many  is allowed? - to find out it is Jeremy anyway - yikes! Given LGBT can get the user the death penalty in some countries, see map and article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_by_country_or_territory or https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/gay-lesbian-bisexual-relationships-illegal-in-74-countries-a7033666.html, this is highly worrying. Showing alternative profiles to different sets of people is fine, having an unspecified way for someone unspecified to find out who owns the profile is not.

The decentralised identity aspects are getting interesting. There's an implicit acknowledgement that we need to know who you are in order to provide options to consent to the use of your data and also to remove your data.

I wonder if you could try https://sequencediagram.org/ to describe Zot VI. It is a JavaScript solution, and the text format immediately updates a visualization. I like it because it is all in browser, I can copy the texted sequence to any text editor, and the image can be saved  to SVG and PNG. I did three integration diagrams yesterday in less than an hour. :-)

Hey all, I guess now is a good time to annouce that I'm delighted to be working with @mayel on the #MoodleNet project. He's joining Moodle on a six-month Technical Architect contract.

You may see some toots from us referencing a design sprint in London this week for the project. We're partnering with Outlandish, a worker-owed tech #coop, for that πŸ‘
