This is particularly for the students who've expressed interest in this
project. I'm pleased that there has been so much interest, and I hope
that some of you might be applying again next year.
I intend, this evening, to read through Google's SOC FAQ
and provide you with additional information about this project. I
suggest, if you've not already done so, that you read through the FAQ.
(You'll need to do so sooner or later, if you're to make a good
that the project is quite new and that you will be applying for a moving
target. I'll be working on the project myself between now and July at
about one or two days a week, as part of my regular job. I hope I can
post some advice on how to deal with that this evening.
I suggest you look at Google Charts and my blog post on Charts and MathTran:
I think you can expect the person in Google who reviews you application
to know something about Charts. Please remember it is Google who will,
you hope, accept your application and provide you with a stipend. I am
simply the mentor in TUG (and it's TUG that will be saying if the work
in your proposal has been done satisfactorily). TUG is also responsible
for reviewing and ranking the TeX student proposal.
Please note that the coding period is May 26th to August 18th. This is
just under 3 months. Please be sure that you will have sufficient time
in this period, and be realistic, when writing your application, about
what you can achieve in this time period.
Hope this helps
