That’s great new Martin, congratulations!

Nice work, Martin.

Congratulations for the acceptance in GSoC! I’m happy to announce that
GNSS-SDR (an open source GNSS receiver based on GNU Radio) has been also
accepted as well as a mentoring organization this year:

Students: get ready to have fun this summer! :slight_smile:

Best regards,
Carles

most enthusiastic about this development: I was disappointed not to get
the current

running on my dongle and am really looking forward to some demo on this
topic.

Hi JM,

could you post what did you do and what was the error? Maybe we can move
this discussion to the GNSS-SDR developers mailing list
http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/gnss-sdr-developers

Hi guys,

do you know how the slot allocation works? Is there a fixed number of
slots
per organization or it depends on the number of received proposals? Any
clue would be welcome.

Best regards,
Carles

Different orgs did get different # of slots in the past. However,
there’s no official description re. the slot allocation; I assume Google
takes all the available info (# of mentors, # of ideas, amount of $$$,
random other facts) and then decides somehow.

It’s not that easy to fill lots of slots, though, despite GSoC probably
being the best thing a student can do over summer. Orgs will probably
have to earn the right to get lots of slots, having to prove they can
handle it.

All of this is guesswork, though!

Kudos Martin…:). That too as a stand-alone project…cool(expecting
more project slots this time).

P.S. For those who are applying: Don’t allow Martin to escape from
mentoring. He is a cool guy to work with :).

It’s not too late to become mentor yourself, Sreeraj :slight_smile:

Thanks Martin, those were my guesses as well. I just wanted to make sure
that I didn’t miss something. I don’t understand, either, the reason why
there is not a MASSIVE number of applications. Could it be lack of
advertisement? Fear of not being “good enough”? Students having a life?

Lets try to improve the figures this year!

Best regards,
Carles

What are the deadlines for applying as a mentor/participant for a Gnu
Radio
GSOC sub-project? How does one go about getting involved?

Thanks,

I created a mentor account, but I’m not sure how to link to GNU Radio.
Could someone add me or provide a link?

student applications open on April 22. Until then we expect students to
discuss ideas with potential mentors.

To become a mentor you need to sign up on the website and click the
links to ask to be a gnuradio mentor.

is a good place to start.
