Here we go again! hugin/panotools has been accepted as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2008.
If you’re a full time student and would like to apply for a paid summer internship with Google, mentored by our team on a project in this exciting area of image processing, read below. Application deadline: March 31 5:00 PM PDT. Some tips on how to get accepted below.
If you are at a university and have access to students, make them aware of this fantastic opportunity for a paid summer internship. Forward them a link to this page. Our last year leaflet needs an update: the timeline that has slightly changed.
And if you are a community member with coding skills and some time (5-10 hours a week over three months) to spare and mentor a student, we’d like to hear from you too.
Student? Here’s how to improve your chances to get accepted
- Familiarize with the community. Join the hugin-ptx mailing list, introduce yourself. Don’t wait with this very important step.
- Familiarize with the codebase. Get hugin, enblend, panotools, freepv. Build them on your computer. Instructions here.
- Check out the bug tracker. Investigate an issue, post a report, post a patch. This year we’ll make contributing a patch a mandatory condition when screening applications. The most updated bug tracker is hugin’s.
- Think of what you’d like to code. Some starting points / ideas are on the panotools wiki. You can either develop further one of the ideas mentioned there, or come up with your own.
Looking forward for another beautiful summer!
Update: proposal will be kept here. Get a wiki account and add yours!
