FénixEDU Open-Source Project

FénixEDU, herein called Fénix, is an open-source project. This wiki is intended primarily for people involved in the development of applications and libraries covered by Project Fénix. More general information regarding the project can be found on our homepage. Information regarding specific processes at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) will not be found here, check out the Computer and Network Services site and wiki instead.

Initially the sole purpose of Project Fénix was to develop a complete academic administration system for IST. The resulting application named FénixEDU is the projects flagship solution. From this application many libraries and tools have been developed and extracted to allow for easy development of other applications benefiting from the same infrastructure.
