Project name

Malt-related project: Standard documentation workflow and conversion tools for documentation, slides etc

Project description

In order to standardise the way service web sites (both for user facing and administrators pages) are handled across the group and department, IT/CDA proposes a standard way to create, maintain and serve service web sites, based on modern and open technologies (Markdown, Gitlab and Openshift). This is now documented in https://twiki.cern.ch/Edutech/ServiceDocumentationGuidelines. The student will develop an easy-to-use workflow to simplify to the maximum the management of such web sites. Since currently many such pages are in existing Twiki, Sharepoint or Drupal documentation pages, the student will also write scripts to convert existing such pages in Markdown automatically.

In addition, the student should deploy an operational solution for easy making and hosting of non Microsoft .pptx slides. The current recommendation https://twiki.cern.ch/Edutech/NonPowerPointSlides needs improvement to become operational documentation.

Required skills

Programming and good english. Good communication skills for exchanges with the service managers.

Learning experience

The IT/CDA group hosts a big amount of important communication, documentation, web and computing services https://cern.ch/it-dep-cda/services/. Getting the experience of these tools will be valuable for the student's future professional life.
