After a year’s break, we’re proud to announce that HPX has once again been accepted as an organization to Google Summer of Code (GSoC)! GSoC connects interested students with open-source projects, and lets students work three months full-time on various interesting projects. If you’re new to GSoC you can read more about the program on the official website.
We’ve put together a list of topics and instructions for you to get started. The topics listed are not exhaustive and you’re free to suggest your own topics, but be prepared to convince us why your idea would be a great addition to HPX! You can introduce yourself and ask questions on the HPX mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org, or hop onto our IRC channel #ste||ar on freenode for more in-depth discussions. Make sure you get in touch with the community early. We’ve found that generally the students who are most involved in our community, processes, and are open to suggestions from mentors have the best chances of succeeding with their application.
