Choosing a Project

To start with, check out the GoogleSummerOfCodeIdeas2009 page and see if you want to work on any of the proposed projects. These projects have been put together by the mentors and the community, so they are projects that many people think are good ones. When you have an idea for which project you want to work on, post to the mailing lists, IRC, or the forum to get feedback from the community, and make sure there isn't too much duplication.

If you would like to propose your own idea, post to one of the above forums to see if there is an interest in the community for your idea. If so, create a wiki page on the GoogleSummerOfCodeIdeas2009 page about your project idea.

From here, you can then start building your application. Feel free to ask on any of the forums for assistance with your application, from editing to advice. The project idea page will be used by the community to keep track of all of the projects through the whole process, from application to development to completion.

Getting Help

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have in any of the community forums, be it IRC, mailing lists, or the forum. Remember, by applying to the GSoC program, you are helping to build Pd, so we want to help you succeed!

Google has a lot of information about applying to the GSoC program on their Advice for GSoC Students Page.
