So, I know this is really late, but my plans for the summer have, shifted around recently, and now I find myself looking for a summer job.
I was planning to stay in Troy for the summer, and continue my work with the Rennselaer Center for Open Source Software on Glide. However, due to a sort of perfect storm of a lot of things, and some personal reflection, I think I am going home for the summer, and taking some time to be in an environment where I can focus on developing a more healthy lifestyle. Need some time away from Troy too…
So, if anyone still has some summer positions available for a college student, and likes the idea of me working on open-source software (I would really love it if I could work on something in the GNOME ecosystem in particular) instead of flipping burgers this summer, I would love to hear from you! (racarr AT gnome DOT org). I would be looking to work from somewhere around June to August, but there is a little flexibility here.
To give people some background on me: I am currently a junior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, majoring in Computer Science (though I expect to graduate with a dual in Pure Mathematics). I’m probably best known in the GNOME community for developing Seed, and I’m currently working on Clutter/GTK+ based presentation software, Glide (see a blog post back). I previously was an involved developer in the Beryl and Compiz Fusion projects. I’ve had some random (GNOME-y and not) dabblings too.
A position where I could work from home, would be greatly preferred…however…if anyone wants to relocate me to Europe…or maybe something like California for the summer…that would be pretty exciting also.
Anyway, if anyone has any prospects (or can maybe point me at some established things that are still open for application), it would be much appreciated. I have not updated a resume in a while, but I can prepare one in pretty short order.
