--About you--
What is your name?
What is your email address?
What is your eLinux wiki username?
What is your IRC nickname?
What is the name of your School and in what country?
What is your primary language? (We have mentors who speak multiple languages and can match you with one of them if you’d prefer.)
Where are you located, and what hours do you tend to work? (We also try to match mentors by general time zone if possible.)Have you participated in an open-source project before? If so, please send us URLs to your profile pages for those projects, or some other demonstration of the work that you have done in open-
source. If not, why do you want to work on an open-source project this summer?
--About your project--
What is the name of your project?
Describe your project in 10-20 sentences. What are you making? For whom are you making it, and why do they need it? What technologies (programming languages, etc.) will you be using?
What is the timeline for development of your project? The Summer of Code work period is about 11 weeks long; tell us what you will be working on each week.
Convince us, in 5-15 sentences, that you will be able to successfully complete your project in the timeline you have described. This is usually where people describe their past experiences, credentials, prior projects, schoolwork, and that sort of thing, but be creative. Link to prior work or other resources as relevant. Provide references such as professors who know your work if you like. Please feel encouraged to visit our IRC channels, #beagle and #beagle-gsoc on, and ask for help.
If your project is successfully completed, what will its impact be on the community? Consider who will use it and how it will save them effort. Give 3 answers, each 1-3 paragraphs in length. The first one should be yours. The other two should be answers received from feedback of members of the community, at least one of whom should be a GSoC mentor. Provide email contact information for non-GSoC mentors.
What will you do if you get stuck on your project and your mentor isn’t around?
Please submit to the beagleboard-gsoc mailing list a statically-linked ARM Linux “hello world” style executable that prints out your name and the date. Please keep it under 1MB. Provide a link here to that executable as archived on the mailing list and provide any instructions required for invoking it. You are welcome to test it on an ARM QEMU environment. Please feel free to visit our IRC channels, #beagle and #beagle-gsoc on, and ask for help.
Is there anything else we should have asked you?
