Geoclue-project in “Summercode Finland”?
February 11, 2008
Kesäkoodi is a “Google Summer of Code”-like program for Finnish students (university and univ. of applied science). Bergie just reminded me that the project plan deadline is Feb 20th — that’s next week.
The project areas are not defined beforehand, but some “areas of special interest” are mentioned:
- social media
- location and context sensitivity
- mobile apps
- system management
- operating systems
About #2 and #3: I’ve got the feeling this summer would be a good time to work on Geoclue. We’ll have the new API finished Real Soon Now™ (promise), and there should be lots more developer interest when we reach summer.
If you’re studying in Finland, have some coding skills and are interested in a location-related programming project, stop by #geoclue irc channel (on irc.gimp.org) or ping me on jabber. Do stop by even if you don’t have a specific idea — maybe we can figure something out…
