Prospecting for Proposals for GSoC 2020

GMOD News - Tue, 02/04/2020 - 01:41
GoogleSummer 2016logo.jpg

The Genome Informatics group and GMOD will be submitting an application for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) this year, and we are soliciting project ideas from people and groups involved in the GMOD project.

GSoC is a global program run by Google to encourage students to get real-world experience of participating in a software project; students work on a project over the summer months and receive a stipend from Google for participating. Thousands of organizations of many different sizes take part in GSoC, with the common factor being that they must produce open-source code.

Please take a look at the GSoC wiki page and think about any projects that might work well for a GSoC student, and add them to the wiki. If you are interested in being a mentor, please contact us at robin.haw@oicr.on.ca help@gmod.org.

If you have any questions--e.g. what constitutes an appropriate project; whether your idea is sufficiently GMOD-related--please feel free to email robin.haw@oicr.on.ca and help@gmod.org for advice!
