Apparently we’ve all made another trip around the sun, because Google’s Summer of Code starts off again today. We’ve applied to be a participating organization again and we’ve put together our ideas page. This page lists the ideas we have for what students can work on over the summer.
However, we find that students who bring their own ideas and inspiration tend to work out better in the program. So, if you are a MusicBrainz fan and you are a current university student who can program, you should consider participating. You’ll need to make sure qualify by Google’s rules.
If you do qualify, can program, and are interested but you’re unsure where to go next, please come visit us in the #musicbrainz channel on irc.freenode.net. We can help you take your ideas and shape them into something that would be workable for a summer project.
