Google Summer of Code Student Application Template

We're always interested in having folks work with us on Network Time projects.

The very best way to have your proposal be accepted by NTF or any of the projects we work with is:

  • Contact us early
  • Engage with us - talk to developers
  • Get to know us, and let us get to know you
  • Look at some of the past proposals, and work with us (early and often) to produce a high-quality proposal

Please include the following information in your application (which should be done at the Google site, not here):
  • Abstract of your project
  • Times that you will busy/unavailable during the 2014 GSoC period.
  • Are you applying to any other GSoC projects? If so, which one(s)?
  • Do you have any examples of your work we could see?
  • Contact information
    • Name
    • e-mail
    • phone number (or skype or ...)
    • physical address
  • Backup contact (in case you go "missing")
  • The school you are attending and what you are studying
  • How much time you will have during GSoC to work on your project
  • What other things you will be doing during GSoC (vacation, exams, travel, ???)

Please be sure that you communicate your GSoC participation - including the full timeline - with your professors and any other folks who will have an interest in how you spend your time. GSoC will very likely take more of your time and attention than you expect, and if you over-commit you will very likely fail at least one of your efforts. You probably don't want that to happen. We certainly don't want that to happen.

Please meet and communicate with us on IRC or on our mailing lists.
