Subject: [boost] GSoC 2015 Paritipation
Date: 2015-03-07 17:30:24
I am eager to participate in GSoC 2015 in one of the two projects (from this page:Â https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/SoC2015 , 1 or 5).
As far as I understood - the first one is tougher, and (as for me) conditions are clearer, and the second one is (seemingly) simpler.
I am totally new to Boost (never used it, actually, but that is because I mostly used C++ in programming contests).
At first, I'd like to ask - what should I choose?Â
My main goals are:
1) To enter the community
2) Learn C++11 new features (I will start early on that, obviously)
3) And to learn how to code open-source programs (up till now I only have closed-source ones, apart from one project, which has not-so-good code quality - see here: https://github.com/hotab/OpticalBuilder )
4) Plus understand better how to maintain library code (I already have some understanding of that, but I want to sharpen it).
Both can give me that.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you,
