So you may or may not remember me talking about a little project that I have been working on as part of my computing a-level this year. Well I finally got permission to release the code (not that there is much yet) and share a whole bunch more with you all, so first off… What is Affero?

Well Affero is the latin for the word “contribute”, and this is a fitting code name for this webapp.

Affero is a community contribution wizard that is being developed as part of an A-Level course. It aims to make getting people involved in a community easier for those trying to choose where in the community they want to help out.

The project has its own little blog/change-log going on over at labs.mozhunt.com/affero/blog it will update about once per day with new information about the code, the project, and you may also notice that the main Affero site labs.mozhunt.com/affero will start to take shape as a full on little web application.

Right now there is not too much information on how the project solves the problem. This is to come! I need to get a little more complete before even I know 100% myself… bare with me on this one.

Oh and one final note, the full code/blog/tests/everything except the official documentation of the project as a whole is available on github.com/fuzzyfox/affero.

UPDATE: Affero just got a logo!
