the ESUG (European Smalltalk User Group) has been selected for the
Google Summer of Code 2012 program to fund students.
I have submit a proposal for a project called SciSmalltalk. You will
found more information about this proposal here:
If you are a student and want to apply for this project, please feel
free to contact me ASAP.
Now it is your turn! You will have to register in our website first ,
put there some information, show interest for the projects and contact
the project mentors. After the registration step you will get all the
mentors information in order to contact them. By pressing the button on
the project, you will show your interest. This is not something formal yet.
Of course you can propose your own project too. In this case write a
proposal in a format other projects have and send it to admins (see the
email on the bottom).
Our mentors will vote for the most interesting projects and in the
middle of the voting Google will tell us, how many projects will
actually be funded. Voting will happen in April, with final results
expected at the end of April. At that time you will finally know if you
are accepted or not.
Of course, there can be many students interested per project. This means
that interest for this project is high, but on the other side a chance
that you will be chosen is lower. It is up to you to convince a mentor
that you are the best!
