Just a short note: The deadline for applying to GSoC has been extended by Google till April 7th! So we hope to get a few more great proposals! So what's a great proposal? It's a good idea (either from our ideas page or some own idea) Being creative and having an own idea which is acceptable might look harder on first sight as you have to come up with an idea, discuss it beforehand to see whether it's acceptable and maybe fine-tune it then before wasting too much time but applying for an idea from our ideas page means that there are other candidates who want to do the same which therefore means you have to show us why you are the perfect candidate for that task and are better than others.
So please contact to us (see ideas page) if you want to discuss your ideas and apply!
