GSoC Checklist

Before the summer coding begins, there are several things that students should do to become familiarized with BRL-CAD development. Below is a checklist of things each student should complete before the official GSoC coding start date. Some items on the checklist should occur during the application submission process while others need to occur before it's time to start coding.

In order to apply

Prior to the starting date

Once coding begins

  • Post patches until you get commit access
  • Write maintainable, portable, complete code
  • Keep a daily log of your activities online somewhere (wiki user page is great for this)
  • Report your progress periodically to the mailing list

After GSoC ends

  • Provide a final report on your project progress to the mailing list
  • Continue working on BRL-CAD  :-)
