Q2 2011

Federated Social Web

  • Drumbeat user accounts should be valid WebFinger identifiers (i.e. paul@drumbeat.org) and should resolve to an XRD with information about services used by the user.
  • Drumbeat should implement OStatus in order to support cross site follows / messaging.
  • We should aim to pass SWAT0. The first "Social web acid test".

Integration with CRM


  • Whatever CRM we go with must have a Web API.
  • Events tracked in CRM:
    • User creation, deletion
    • Event creation, deletion
    • Project creation, deletion
    • Updates to major fields in these models ("major is tbd")
    • User joins a Project
    • User RSVPs to an Event

Possible Architecture

In order to make requests to the CRM API in a way that does not affect the performance of the site (and hence the user experience), the integration will need to be asynchronous. We could use Django post_save signals on the models to send messages to a message queue. Another application could then consume tasks from the message queue and do the necessary work on the CRM side.
