GSoC 2024 call for project ideas!
Google Summer of Code is a global, online program focused on bringing new contributors into open source software development. GSoC Contributors work with an open source organization on a 12+ week programming project under the guidance of mentors.
As of today, applications for organisations are open (not yet for contributors). I expect projects like BRL-CAD et all, IfcOpenShell / BlenderBIM Add-on, FreeCAD, Blender, GIMP, OpenStreetMap, OSGeo, CGAL, who all joined in last year to potentially also be available this year.
Here is the list of ideas of projects for IfcOpenShell / BlenderBIM Add-on for 2024: https://github.com/opencax/GSoC/issues?q=is:issue+is:open+label:"Project:+IfcOpenShell"
Note that these are just ideas. You can choose from the list of ideas, or come up with your own idea! Anybody who is new to contributing to open source can join! Do you have an idea? Now is a good time to add it!
FreeCAD also has a list of ideas: https://wiki.freecad.org/Google_Summer_of_Code_2023 - if you are a FreeCAD user or dev and have an idea, now is a great time to add it (and start a new page for 2024 potentially).
