Before this year's Google Code-In begins, there are several things that students should do to become familiar with BRL-CAD development. Below is a checklist of things each student should know. Some items on the checklist should occur during the application process while others need to occur before it's time to start coding.


  1. GCI is open for individual students who are at least thirteen (13) years of age and no older than seventeen (17) years of age on November 18, 2013 who are currently enrolled in a pre-university, high school or secondary school program.
