A new round of Google Summer of Code is gather speed.
We are happy to announce, that once again, LibreCAD is part of GSoC in 2019!
Again, under the umbrella of BRL-CAD, a couple of CAD/CAM/CAE or short CAx organizations going to mentor students for a 3 month full time coding challenge during their summer break.
The students, when they participate successfully, will gain experience, reputation and also a certificate and a stipend from Google.
Our value will be the progress, bringing LibreCAD 3 to a new level and hopefully attract the participants to stay longer with us and become a regular contributor.
If you are a student who is eligible for the program, have some C++ skills and prefer coding over selling burgers, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Or you know one who might be interested, let him know about this great chance.
Look out for Armin (LordOfBikes) or Florian (Feragon) on our community chat channels IRC #librecad or Zulip or reply to any project idea.
Yesterday Google announced the accepted students and we have got one slot for a promising student to work on LibreCAD 3 development this summer.
Please welcome Kartik Kumar, a student from National Institute of Technology, Hamipur, India.
His proposal is about OpenGL rendering in LibreCAD 3 to replace the Cairo engine.
He will work from June to August on this project and we wish him good luck for this challenge!
