Dear all,

GNU Astronomy Utilities[1] (Gnuastro) is participating in this year's Google Summer of Code[2] (GSoC) as part of the OpenAstronomy[3] organization. Two main ideas have been posted for this year ([4] for astrometry and [5] for Python wrappers for Gnuastro's powerful C library). Although other interesting suggestions are also welcome.

Through the Summer of Code program, Google offers interested students generous stipends to work on a free software package during the summer months (that they are presumably free from course work). Free software projects benefit from their contributions and help mentor the students. In the case of Gnuastro, its not just raw software/programming, but it will also involve a fair share of Astronomical data analysis.

So if you know any students (undergraduate, M.Sc or Ph.D) that may be interested in understanding how astronomical data are analyzed and improve it, want to contribute to a large project, *and* get paid by Google for doing this (which is also great for their CV!), please pass this email onto them. The students can be from any field, but I guess students in astronomy, computer science, or software engineering may be most interested.

Students can start submitting applications from March 29th until April 13th, see [2] for the details. Just note that active code contribution before the submission greatly increases their chances of getting accepted, so they are recommended to get their hands dirty as soon as possible, following the steps in [6].
