If you’re a student and have not had time to apply for a Summer of Code internship with the hugin/panotools project, here are good news for you.
The procedure to join hugin/panotools is still mostly unchanged. You can apply before you submit a patch. The purpose of submitting a patch is to give the ultimate demonstration of the following skills/assets:
- to make sure you have a complete, functional tool chain (hardware and software) from day zero.
- to know that you have the basic skills to use that tool chain and build the code (basic building skills).
- to know that you can navigate the codebase, learn to understand it, make some small changes (basic coding skills).
- to assess your ability to interact with the community and integrate your code into an existing code base.
- to assess your code quality.
If you can provide examples of code you have written in the past on other projects, that’s enough to assess your code quality too. A patch is still preferred because it is more relevant to the current context, but we understand that time is short. This is not the time to over-achieve – a simple patch is more than enough!
have started to understand it and can
make some small initial changes.
