Getting started

BRL-CAD is participating as a mentoring organization in the 2011 Google Summer of Code!

STUDENTS: if you're interested in participating with BRL-CAD in GSoC, please review our CHECKLIST to help you get started.

Additional Information

You can go to our Project Ideas page for a list of project suggestions that are of particular interest. There are also several other areas of development that are of high-interest. Students are welcome to submit their own ideas as well but, more importantly, you are encouraged to collaborate with the developers on formulating projects. Student applications for GSoC are accepted at http://socghop.appspot.com between March 26th and April 6th.

In the past, we've received several dozen applications by the submission deadline. We generally narrow down our selections to ten or fewer of the more passionately interested students. From those that make the final ten, we've previously selected four or five to participate. This year, we chose to only accept two applicants in order to concentrate more attention on their efforts.
