###License All code is released under the Apache 2 license which is the same license that webapp2 is under.

###About Udacious! is a project by students of CS253 an online content delivery framework featuring quality student-submitted articles centered around Udacity classes. Mooted by @Frazzle on the cs253 forum, the project invites contribution from all Udacity students.

The website will be hosted on GAE and written in Python using the webapp2 framework and GAE datastore. Source code is hosted on Github.

###Current Status

We have an IRC channel at ##udacitymagazine (irc.freenode.net) where the team discusses specifications and ideas - feel free to join in! To connect quickly, we recommend visiting http://webchat.freenode.net, entering a nickname (preferably the same username that you use on the forum so for easy recognition), and signing in to the aforementioned channel.

The IRC channel is logged, and the logs can be found here: ##udacitymagazine Logs or here: ##udacitymagazine logs on ds-ex.codemonki.es

##Questions/Decisions:

  • should we host jQuery (etc.) locally or use a CDN (preferably Google's?)
  • do we allow nested comments (i.e. replies to a comment create a new branch)?
