Google Summer of Code/2012
BRL-CAD IS APPLYING as a mentoring organization in the 2012 Google Summer of Code!
STUDENTS: if you're interested in working on BRL-CAD for GSoC, please review our CHECKLIST to help you get started.
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 28th and April 8th.
To be determined.
In the past, we've received several dozen applications by the submission deadline. This year, we're actively seeking out more applicants but aim to select as many qualified students as we can manage.
Your chances with a smaller org like BRL-CAD are generally far greater than with one of the larger more notable organizations.
We won't know how many slots we will accept this year until after the submission deadline but chances are really good if it's obvious that you're passionate about working on BRL-CAD long after GSoC is over. We're looking to grow our developer community, not scratch a summer job itch.
