* ... take into account that '''Google Summer of Code is a full time job'''. If you consider getting an additional part time job, have extensive exams or an extended vacation during the program, you likely should not apply. If you do anyway, please make sure to explicitly list your other commitments in your application.
** ''Experience in previous years' GSoC has shown us that students with extensive extra commitments during the GSoC coding phase tend to really struggle to meet their goals. GSoC becomes a burden instead of being fun.''
* ... '''get in touch with us''' and our community. In particular, visit our IRC channel #scummvm on, and/or email the technical contacts listed on the [[OpenTasks]] page for each task that sounds appealing to you.
** ''Your best chance to find out whether ScummVM is right for you, and whether you are right for ScummVM, is to talk to us. We'll be happy to answer your questions, and help you decide whether you like to work with us. Your chances of being accepted later on will also be much higher if we already know you a bit. And finally, regular attendance of our IRC channel is almost mandatory if you want to work with us anyway ;-)''
