Call for GSoC Proposals

March 20, 2008 at 10:39 pm | Posted in KDE, KDevelop | 1 Comment

Yes, its that time of the year again. Time to get your creativity out and find some nice things to hack on for Google’s Summer of Code. Looking at the ideas page on Techbase you’ll find only one SoC idea for KDevelop, but we already discuss 3 other possible projects. These projects are ideas that originated from students, which has proven to be the most successful way of getting a SoC project finished. So for this year we’d like to see more of those student-proposed ideas and thus keep the list of developer-proposed ideas short.

So if you’ve got some C++ experience and would like to work on a really great IDE, check out KDevelop3 or KDevelop4 and see if you can find something thats missing, something that can be improved (granted you’ll find a lot of that in KDevelop4). Or browse bugs.kde.org for our list of wishlist items. Last thing you could do is see if you find another IDE that does something awesome and try to implement that in KDevelop4.

If you have a nice idea for KDevelop4 then come to #kdevelop on irc.freenode.org or to our developer mailinglist (kdevelop-devel@kdevelop.org, subscription at kdevelop.org) and explain your idea. We’re happy to help with the details for the proposal and to give general feedback on how well suited the idea is for SoC.

  1. Note that one could also apply to “upstream” projects that KDevelop wants to provide integration for.

    From the organizations listed on http://code.google.com/soc/2008/ it might be possible that Git, Mercurial and SCons consider an integration project. Given that one can apply to multiple organizations, I think KDE students should use that possibility to increase their chances of being selected, and the number of KDE related projects overall.
