A better IPython and Jupyter Notebook Integration for FreeCAD
By @kryptokommunist, mentored by @yorik, @kkremitzki and @ickby
Extended functionality of Rebar Addon
By @Suraj Dadral, mentored by @bernd and @amrit3701
FEM Examples Extension in FreeCAD
By @Sudhanshu, mentored by @bernd, @HoWill and @kkremitzki
BTW, the whole BRL-CAD umbrella got 8 approved projects, 3 for FreeCAD, 2 for BRL-CAD, 2 for OpenSCAD, 1 for libreCAD.
To the three of you, please use the specific thread to discuss your project with us. In FreeCAD, we try to use this forum for GSOC projects as much as possible, because it allows the whole community to interact with you, not only the mentors. Try to post as much as possible there, do not refrain yourself from adding a lot of screenshots, etc. I guarantee you that it can be really rewarding, to see everybody follow your progresses and encourage you. You won't regret it Plus, at the end of the project, it furnishes an awesome logbook.
This thread serves mainly as a general announcement channel, we'll be reminding everybody here (students and mentors) of deadlines, things to do, etc. So please keep always an eye here!
Now, up to June 1st, is what google calls the community bonding period, which basically serves to know each others and help you guys get into FreeCAD and the community. This is usually pretty easy Make sure you guys can deal with everything you'll need. I believe only @kryptokommunist will need to compile FreeCAD himself, as his project might involve C++. The two others are full Python projects, right? In any case, I'd ask all of you to make sure you have cloned the FreeCAD source code, have a git account somewhere, and know how to deal with git.
Good luck everybody, don't hesitate to get back to any of us if you meet any problem!
