Out of only 10 chosen, I'm delighted to announce that BRL-CAD was accepted to participate in Google Code-In (GCI)! Complementary to the highly successful Google Summer of Code program for university students, GCI is a contest encouraging pre-university students (age 13-17) to get involved with open source. Students will work our "itty-bitty" tasks related to code, documentation/training, outreach/research, quality assurance, and user interface.
The BRL-CAD open source community is honored to be selected for GCI, now in a third year running. With no shortage of introductory tasks helping improve the state of open source CAD, students may begin making submissions on November 26, 2012. For a detailed timeline of important events and more information please review the Frequently Asked Questions. For an introduction and itemization of all organizations participating in GCI, see the Google Open Source Blog and watch their screencast.
