Summer of Code 2008

Postby Dark Shikari » Tue Mar 18, 2008 3:59 pm UTC

I'm quite surprised there isn't an SoC 2008 thread yet; the announcements on which organizations were accepted were sent out yesterday!

Who here is planning to apply for SoC? I'm mentoring for x264's SoC, sponsored by VideoLan. ffmpeg and Videolan have already gotten quite a number of interested students, though I suspect from my knowledge of previous years, there will be quite a few more.

I'd be applying if I wasn't 17, but I am, and so I can't :?.

I would consider it if I was a student, but I am not.

Good luck on your applications, though!

I was very excited to apply and started looking for a mentoring organization, but I realized that I probably wouldn't be able to tackle any of the things organizations are looking for. It made me feel really stupid, but maybe someday :-/

I'm looking seriously at applying for a couple things. Mostly with the Eclipse project.

More later.

Hey, thanks for reminding me about this. Now let's see if I can find something I'm interested in working on.

I'm thinking maybe the shader library for CrystalSpace or porting SDL to the 360 using XNA...

15 so can't do it AFAIK, but I just got my t-shirt, stickers and certificate from the Highly-open participation contest.

I updated the Python3K documentation removing all mentions of long integer (since all integers are long integers in Python3K).

Ooo, maybe something with haskell.org, or TUG, or BZFlag (heheh) might be fun.

This is the first year I'm able to participate, but I was hoping that http://iolanguage.com or http://suckless.org would have made it in...I just started helping the Io guys out with patches etc. :cry:

In any case, I admire the openness that Google encourages with this thing, both in that it supports FOSS in general and in how little they restrict the students and mentors.

I was kind of hoping Paint.NET would be on there. It's an amazing little program.
