Here you will find several important rules which you have to conform in order to be eligible to application as a student for ScummVM project.

  • Google Summer of Code is a full time job. If you consider getting an additional part time job or have exams, do not apply.
  • We demand a comprehensive and detailed plan for all 12 weeks of your project. Include risk mitigation.
  • We require each student to communicate with their mentor every second day. If you fail to do that for longer than 3 days, you will fail the program.
  • Students are expected to submit a patch which fixes some known bug, extends functionality in some way, or is a start of their work which they are applying for.
  • Students have to blog about their progress on a weekly basis or more often.
  • Stick to our Code Formatting Conventions.
  • The code has to be always at least compilable.
  • Commit often, commit early.
