We're delighted to announce that MRPT has been selected to participate into Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2018!
As you probably know, this program aims at consolidating communities around open-source projects by allowing skilled students to devote ~3 months to a project of his/her interest. In turn, students receive an stipend that depends on the country of residence but should be roughly equivalent to 6000 $ (USD).
Feel free of spreading the word among friends who may be interested! ;-)
- Being selected is a very competitive process.
- It's required to ensure that the interested student will have spare time to devote to the project (June-July-August), i.e. this cannot be simultaneous to another full-time job. Having to take exams may be acceptable if a realistic working plan is approved by mentors.
Interested candidates are encouraged to open a thread in our mailing list to introduce themselves and discuss about their proposed project or ideas.
