Dear Boost community,
once again this year, we will apply to be a mentoring organization for the
Google Summer of Code 2018. Our organization has been quite succesful for
the last decade and this year we hope to be selected again.
As part of filling in our application for 2018, we must supply to Google a
list of potential GSoC mentors and potential GSoC projects for summer 2018
in order to be approved as an organisation this year.
Therefore a lengthy page of awesome project ideas at
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/SoC2018 before *January 23rd* would
be an enormous help to getting us approved again this year and bringing to
Boost another Google funding (worth dozens of thousands of dollars on
If you think yourself able to mentor a student doing some work on Boost
this summer, *please* consider adding a description of the proposed work item
and your name to the list. If you want to have a better chance receiving
funding for your project ideas, it is better to find good students early and
that is best done by getting project ideas floated *early*.
If you want to know more about mentoring a Google Summer of Code funded student
work before you nominate yourself, please feel free to ask on the main
Boost developers mailing list boost_at_[hidden] or via
gsoc-admin_at_boost.org. Thank you in advance for your time.
Finally, I would like to thank Niall Douglas, our previous Boost
admnistrator for GSoC, who did an awesome work during many years and helped
the Boost community grow thanks to all the funding we received years after
years from Google.
