I just had the pleasure to issue vouchers to our Google Summer of Code mentors on behalf of Bill Bailey, Director Global Sales and Marketing for Nodal Ninja. Vouchers for the students will follow on successful completition of their projects.
Bill has been very generous with our team. Not every mentor was lucky to be assigned a student, but all of them helped the team effort out, and Bill generously decided to give vouchers to all mentors in our team – a total of 11 mentors – as recognition of their contribution to Open Source panorama software.
Bill decided to offer Nodal Ninja 5 complete packages to three of us:
- Pablo d’Angelo, in recognition of his effort as main author of hugin
- Ken Turkowski, in recognition of his contribution to the VR industry as inventor of QTVR
- Yuval Levy, for instigating and orchestrating this.
I met both Pablo and Ken when we were invited by Google for the Summer of Code Mentor Summit 2007. We had a great time. Ken had the home advantage and invited us for dinner. Click on the image to interact with a VR of that beautiful day.
Thank you, Bill.
