while many of us are gearing up for the EU review end next
week (we should sent our last reports in, puh!)
there is an idea where i'd enjoy your feedback on.
We'd like to propose to the EU that we can fund
a Summer of PyPy (modelled after Google's Summer of Code
last year) which would roughly work like this:
- all students can send in proposals for roughly two-months
projects that leverage PyPy in some way - e.g. in areas like
new backends or frontends, optimisations, new fun
tools, security, distributed systems, logical programming,
- 6-10 people get accepted from a board of experts
and everyone gets a personal mentor
- you would be invited to the PyPy Post-EuroPython sprint
which serves as a kickoff meeting
- two months implementation time
- participants are invited to another closing-off sprint
- results get reviewed if they achieved the goals
if so: a sum of 3000-4000 euro is payed flat
This is the rough idea - no guarantee it will work this
exact way or any way at all :)
So what do you think about this whole idea?
And would you personally consider wanting to participate?
Are you not a student and would like to participate anyway?
Summer of PyPy would involve a noticeable organisational
effort on our side so it's good to have an idea how much
interest there might be.
thanks & cheers,
