Great news – Synfig is one of 202 organizations who has been accepted to participate in Google Summer of Code this year again!
This is already a third time we participate in this program and we are absolutely excited about this opportunity. You can find more details on our organization page and don’t forget to check our list of ideas for possible projects. This list is not exhaustive, students are encouraged to come with their own proposals (after having their relevance validated by core developers). Please note, that this year there is an important change in program rules: all student projects should be 175 hours (not 350 hours as in the past 16 years).
Now it’s a good moment for interested students to get familiar with Synfig’s source code and our development workflow, get in touch with developers to define or refine their project proposal.
We strongly encourage prospective students to start contributing on simple issues before the actual application deadline: we’ll be picking only those students who have demonstrated that they can fit into our workflow. The application period takes place from March 30 to April 14 (see full program timeline).
