52°North welcomes students participating in this year’s Google Summer of Code
52°North is pleased to announce that we will mentor three students for Google Summer of Code 2020! The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for Open Source projects. During their break from university, the students work on a 3 month programming project. This year, 199 mentoring organizations reviewed 8,902 applications—submitted by 6,626 students from 121 countries— and selected 1,199 students from 66 countries.
52°North welcomes three students, who will tackle different projects ranging from trajectory analysis for enviroCar, improved car selection for the enviroCar app, to creating a new Angular WPS Module based on TypeScript.
- Trajectory Analytics Toolbox (John Murzaku)
- Improvement of the Car Selection Process in the enviroCar Android App (Arvind Negi)
- Angular WPS Client library (Karan Singh)
After a period of community bonding, in which the students get to know their mentors and the organization better, coding begins. Stay tuned for the student blogs!
