2008 Google Summer of Code promotional flyer

Post by learner » Sun Mar 02, 2008 10:09 pm

IFF we are once again accepted into the Google Summer of Code, there will be more announcements coming regarding various activities and opportunities we have planned. In order to get the word out again like last year, there is a 2008 Google Summer of Code promotional flyer available thanks to our very own Saturos graphic artist extraordinaire:

More details to be posted later if we are accepted, but feel free to post the flyer around local universities and colleges in the meantime. There are translations available in German and Spanish, thanks to whodaman and Manu respectively. Again, be sure to thank Saturos for the great design if you see him around!

See the wiki page for details regarding who can participate and timelines.
A mentor blog for the project has been created at, http://tanks4code.blogspot.com/

Cheers!
Sean

Remind us of all the wonderful things that resulted of the '07 GSoC... How many of the contributions made it into permanent code???

Yay to everyone involved!
...This has been a recording.

BZRobots, it's part of the trunk code now.
BZWorkbench, in SVN now, just needs bit of interface work.
BZWGen, in SVN now, you can build it and use it whenever you want.

To elaborate a bit:

BZWB needs more than just a bit of interface work. I'd estimate it's maybe 2/3 done. Still a fairly remarkable achievement given the time involved and complexity of the project.

BZRobots will be shipped with 3.0, expect to see more about it then.

BZWGen is in SVN and will probably be reworked a bit to load as a plugin for 3.0, so we can ship it with the rest of BZFlag.

In short, if you haven't heard much about the 2007 SoC projects, it's because we've been slacking on actually releasing 3.0.
