We will be participating in the NumFOCUS google summer of code org this
year. Interested students will be able to spend 10 weeks this summer
improving yt. We have three project ideas on our google summer of code
repository on GitHub along with detailed instructions on how to apply:
Applications are due March 27, 2018.
To apply for google summer of code you must be enrolled as an undergraduate
or graduate student at an accredited university. The stipend scales with
cost of living, but goes from ~$2400 (in e.g. India) to ~$6600 (in e.g. the
USA). During the course of the program, the student is expected to work
full time on their summer of code project as an independent contractor
funded by Google.
A successful applicant will make themselves visible to the yt developer
community and will reach out to us on our developer mailing list. We also
have a requirement that the applicant must submit and merge at least one
pull request before we approve your application. We strongly encourage
applicants to contact their prospective mentor to ask questions about their
application and iterate on drafts well before the deadline.
If you know anyone who might be interested in this opportunity, please
forward this e-mail to them. I'm happy to answer questions via e-mail.
I am Aasheesh Tiwari from India. Currently, I am pursuing Masters in
Geoinformatics from CSRE , Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). I
have my bachelors in Computer Science. I have had the exposure to
geospatial data and I did several assignments on spatial data Interpolation
. I have good understanding of various interpolation techniques.
Currently, i have been working on an IOT based sensing device which
measures various parameters of an agricultural land, this data acquired
from the sensors is used to predict the health of crops. And various
parameters like temperature, soil moisture etc are visualized for the
farmers to interpret.
I would love to contribute in the upcoming Google Summer of Code 2018. I
would be very grateful to get any directions to start with so that i can
pursue and participate in GSoC 2018 with your organisation.
