I'm going to the GSOC mentors summit!

Postby yorik » Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:29 pm

For who doesn't know the big news yet, I'll be going at the Google Summer of Code mentors summit in october, together with Sean, Vasco and Gauravjeet from BRL-CAD. I'm pretty excited to visit google :) (will post pictures!) and meet with those guys, see what idea we can come up with together, etc.

If any of you is in the San Francisco area, tell me!

I hope you enjoy the trip. But be careful with google. They usually absorb competitors and people. :lol:

Have been following the various FreeCAD GSOC threads and all the projects seem to be a great success.
Long may it continue.

Yorik deserves to be going for all his hard work on FreeCAD

Would be good if somebody did a summary presentation on the FreeCAD GSOC projects and what they have achieved.
i.e. So the info was in one place rather than a number of forum threads
