Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.
Google I/O 2013 brings together thousands of developers for three days of deep technical content focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.

Election watchdog Bersih will set up a people's tribunal to investigate the extent of electoral fraud and irregularity. Pemantau has been collecting evidence and reports from the public through SMS, calls and an on-line form using Ushaidi.

The on-line form needs improvements including easy to use fields for the public to enter voting centres and multimedia uploads. We will also try to identify other improvements and bugs that can be fixed.

This is an important task, as the public will be called on to submit evidence of electoral fraud, which will be reviewed by the people's tribunal. We need to make it easy to submit reports of electoral fraud. We also need visualizations to sift through thousands of reports for the panel of the people's tribunal and the general public.

Skills:

- MariaDB/MySQL
- PHP (other languages also for scraping/re-organizing data)
- GIS
- UI - HTML/CSS/JS
- Graphics Design
- System Administration
- Copy editing
- Visualization
- Bug triaging/documentation
- Testers

We will be meeting to discuss the issues, plan of action and then begin work. We will be sprinting again the next day (Saturday).

Story
Introduction
I am a self-certified geek all in all. Studied Math and Business and love how they work seamlessly with technology. This is one of the reasons why I worked on setting up the Technology and Operations Research Unit under my employer which directly advises the CIO and CTO on making sound business decisions about technology. Love networking and entrepreneurship and a strong believer in thinking big and making it happen.
