It’s that time again – the time where Google will announce their Summer of Code! In the summer of code, students can work on free software projects during their summer break, and make $4500 while they’re at it. FFmpeg has traditionally been a strong contender, and some of its highest profile code (VC-1, WMAPro and RealVideo4 decoders, just to name a few) was developed in part in the Summer of Code.
Are you a student, proficient in C, with excellent technical skills / insight (or you want to learn to develop these) and you want to contribute to one of the most exciting free software projects out there? Then apply for one of FFmpeg’s suggested projects for GSoC 2010!
