52°North successfully completed its second participation in the Google Summer of Code. We are happy to announce that all four students did a really great job in their projects. Thanks to all participants – students and mentors alike! If you have been following the blogs over the course the summer/fall, you will have read about the particular projects previously.more >
52°North is pleased to welcome the following students to work with us closely this summer on four Google Summer of Code projects!
- Mohammad Ahmed Hamed Yakoub (from Cairo, Egypt) will tackle the ” Open Sensor Search” project (Sensor Web Community) and implement a one stop shop for finding sensor data.
- Khalid Alqinyah (from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) will spend the summer working on the “52°North Processing Server Admin Interface” (Geoprocessing Community) and transfer the current HTML/JSP approach to a modern and flexible web application framework.
- Patrick Noble (from San Luis Obispo, CA, USA) will make seismic data from a variety of different sources available through the SOS in the “Seismic Data Modeling in SOS” (Sensor Web Community) project.
- Jinlong Yang (From State College, PA, USA) will implement and/or improve generic classes, methods and tools for handling and analyzing large-scale trajectory data with R in the “Trajectory Analysis in R” (Geostatistics Community).
52°North is thrilled to announce that it has been chosen the second year in a row to be a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2013 (GSoC)! The Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. Google pays the stipend recipient $ 5.000,- for 3 months of software development for 52°North. A mentor from a 52°North partner organization supervises the student during this period.
As such, we now look for students who are interested in writing code for various 52°North projects. If you are interested in writing code for software developed by the 52°North communities, please have a look at https://wiki.52north.org/bin/view/Projects/GSoC2013.
Student Application opens on April 22, 2012 at 19:00 UTC – but the discussion can start right now!
This summer, flip bits not burgers with 52°North!
