Google Summer of Code - students accepted

Hi all,

I’d like to congratulate and welcome Apoorv and Ben who have been
accepted as this years GSoC 2013 students for SDL. [1]

Apoorv will be working on the visual test automation, and Ben on a
meta-build system project as per our ideas page. [2] You’ll hear more
about their GSoC work as students will be reaching out to the community
via this list in the next few weeks and months as the projects progress.

–Andreas

Congratulations to both of you, Apoorv and Ben, and good luck on your
projects!

But that means I didn?t get accepted for my proposal to improve the
DirectFB backend and bring it OpenGL acceleration through KMS. I will
still do it outside of the program because that?s something I really
want to see in SDL, so it?s as if there was two and a half gsoc
students. ^^

I will try to follow the timeline of my proposal, and will post on this
list when I reach a major milestone, but since it is outside the
program I will work at my own pace and certainly not full-time like
initially planned.

Anyway, I hope this will be a good experience, and that maybe I will
get accepted next year for another proposal. :)On Tue, May 28, 2013 at 08:37:50AM -0700, Andreas Schiffler wrote:

That’s amazing, thanks! Several of the mentors (including myself :slight_smile: ) were
hoping for an extra slot to make this project possible, so it’s great news
that you intend to proceed anyway. I can’t speak for the others, but
anything you need let us know, I’ll be happy to provide guidance, testing,
etc.

Emmanuel,
That’s nice to hear. If you do continue on, and work on this outside of
GSoC, you should start a public repo on GitHub, Bitbucket or one of the
many others and post your work there as you progress through it. This can
then be pointed to in your application for GSoC2014 (if Google keeps
running GSoC). That’s one thing that potential mentors look at when
evaluating dozens of proposals to pick out just the few that we are
allotted by Google. Note that I’m note a mentor for SDL, but am a mentor
for another org who uses SDL in their code.

Yes, congratulations guys, and Emmanuel, I’m glad to hear you’re not
letting Google keep you down. :slight_smile:

I’m looking forward to each of your projects and will be following them
avidly this summer. :slight_smile:
