Guess what-- Purr Data was accepted as a mentoring organization
for Google Summer of Code 2018! This is a program where we mentor students
who code up new features and improvements to Purr Data, in a program that
runs roughly from May to August.
I'd like to invite people here to become mentors.
Now, I know most people will instantly think they couldn't possibly have
the knowledge necessary to become a mentor.
So I added an idea to the bottom of the list of projects with that in mind:
If you notice, it is possible to complete that project
using only Pd as the programming language. In other words, if you know you're
way around Pd well enough to suggest how to structure and create
such a library, then you possess enough knowledge to be a Purr Data mentor
Additionally, I would invite people to suggest similar types of project ideas
that only require the Pd language in order to complete. And if that project is
within your area of expertise, consider becoming a GSoC mentor for Purr Data.
Finally, if you are interested in participating as a student consider applying
for GSoC-- the application process for students begins March 12.
