Joomla GSOC 2009 Student Gartheeban GaneshapillaiI am an undergraduate at University of Moratuwa, majoring in Electronic and Telecommunication engineering.  I am also a Web2 and PHP developer in my leisure time with a passion towards scalable distributed systems that embrace and empower Web2.0, and it has become a full-time activity recently.  I expect to embark upon a new career at MIT as a PhD student in the fall 2009. My alias is Theebgar.

My project intends to address a greatly missing feature of Joomla! that is a well structured Taxonomy Component (API, frontend and extensions / modules) to provide proper organisation of content through Taxonomies and Tagging.  Almost all content needs organisation for easy access and a well-designed Taxonomy Component increases the accessibility and usability of the site dramatically.
