Wikirating:Projects

From Wikirating, the transparent world rating organization.
Jump to: navigation, search

Beside generally active users, Wikirating needs volunteers who want to do more, either for business topics or for technical topics, e.g. development/improvement of credit rating methods or software development (PHP, JavaScript). You do not have to be an expert, though it certainly is a plus.

Any group of users (students, experts, ...) is also very welcome to perform its own project/idea for Wikirating, might it be on the business side or on the technical side. It is only important that the project is related to the credit rating topics.

If you are interested in taking on responsibility for a project, feel free to contact us.

Projects - technical

We are looking for people to develop the following features/extensions. If you are interested, feel free to contact us.

Central data repository for credit ratings

Assigned users: Still none - apply!

Credit rating ticker plug-in (for external websites)

We are looking for volunteers to develop a ticker plug-in that would feed on the fly an internet page (e.g. news or economicy portals) with the Wikirating ratings from each method.
Assigned users: Still none - apply!

Data feed interface

We are looking for volunteers to implement for the Wikirating portal interfaces/connections to external public databases (IMF, Eurostat, International Financial Statistics (IFS), Bloomberg, ...) in order to feed Wikirating with (up-to-date) market and other data. The storage and indexing of the data sets could be done within a MySQL database.
Assigned users: Still none - apply!

Sovereign credit rating toolbox

We want a toolbox (extension or plug-in for MediaWiki) that would allow for each user generating and modifying the ratings directly from the Wikirating platform. With such an extension, end users should be able to simulate credit ratings on the fly by:

  • Choose data source (data feeds required, from available databases such as Eurostat, IMF, Bloomberg...)
  • Choose rating criteria (among pre-defined list)
  • Choose weight for each criteria
  • Graphically display the generated ratings
  • Options to publish the generated ratings on Wikirating and to make it available to the community for review and comments

Ideally, the extension could do what the United Nations Human Development Index tool does.
Assigned users: Still none - apply!


Projects - business
