Title: C::B + Summer of Code?
Post by: squizzz on April 14, 2006, 11:04:46 pm
It seems that new edition of Google's Summer of Code is being prepared - http://code.google.com/soc/ (http://code.google.com/soc/).

Are there any plans that Code::Blocks project will participate (and benefit) as a mentor? :P






PS. results of SoC 2005 (http://code.google.com/soc-results.html).

I think so. There are two items in the roadmap that can particularly benefit:

# Clean rewrite of code parser
# Code Refactoring functionality

You mean people are going to help us with C::B?

That'd be awesome :) But what do we (team) need to do?

There's a Mentor FAQ (http://code.google.com/soc/mentorfaq.html) explaining everything.
Basically, project has to provide poll of ideas (bounties) that could be implemented by student participants.

There are still 8-9 days left to register as a mentor and submit "bounties".

It would be great if the devs register as mentors.
Getting students to help the project, while also being paid, it's great.


squizz: if the core devs don't have time for registering, can other devs register?

Quote from: FAQ
3. How does the program work?

   1. Organizations who would like to participate in Summer of Code 2006 should choose an organization administrator(s) to represent them
   2. Organization administrators submit their organization's interest by emailing [email protected]
   3. Google notifies of acceptance and creates the organization's account on the Summer of Code site
   4. Organizations sign up mentors and publish their pool of project ideas
   5. Students submit to Google proposals to work with particular mentoring organizations; Google routes to the mentor organization, and the proposals are ranked by mentors working with those organizations.
   6. Accepted students start work based on their proposals; mentors give guidance throughout the duration of the program
   7. Mentors provide mid-term evaluations of student progress
   8. Mentors provide a final review of student work, and each student provides a single overall review of her/his mentor
   9. Student uploads completed program to Google site

So I guess yes.
