I wanted to share with you that the ASWF has been accepted as a mentoring organization to this year's Google Summer of Code. OpenColorIO and our sibling ASWF projects have teamed up to suggest work that participating university students could propose to accomplish over their summer break. Our projects will benefit from full time developers, and we in turn can mentor students as they explore the critical role open source software plays in the media and entertainment industry.
From March 16th to March 31st, students will be able to submit applications to propose projects. If you or someone you know would be a good candidate for participating in GSoC with OpenColorIO or another ASWF project, please check out these links for more information on the program and how to get started:
