Be aware that in 2015 Boost rules for GSoC are slightly changing:
candidates who demonstrate C++ programming aptitude are now
preferentially chosen over those who do not. We are still finalising
the rules, but if you have previously written a 5,000-10,000 line
open source C++ library that would definitely count.

If you don't have that, we will be setting programming competency
exams this year, and your score on those will affect your ranking
relative to other candidates.
