  1. @Itms @Stan` Google Summer of Code 2020 has been announced with timeline. What do you think?
  2. @Nescio Done and thanks! @stanislas69 Developing a new AI is very interesting for me specially the OpenAI part and I will be actively pursuing this goal. Thanks!
  3. Thanks @elexis and @(-_-). Your replies are really helpful. I think I have a good long-term plan set up now. Will start by checking small fixes/patches like ones provided above experimenting their effect on game-play, to get accustomed with the code base and development cycle. Hopefully afterwards I will move into more advanced issues like short-range pathfinder and ultimately developing a new AI if that's aligned with the project's plans which would be a great experience for me.
  4. Thanks @stanislas69. Sorry, the question " Are you sure you are not wanting to work on something programming related " was a bit confusing for me since English is not my first language. My bad tho. I've already started on the given link by successfully building 0AD. I was waiting for an "approval of proposal" to get to the next steps but seems I don't need that. I guess I will be exploring the tickets and getting in touch with the devs on IRC then.
  5. Position: AI Programmer. Do you understand that Wildfire Games is a non-commercial project, work for 0 A.D. is volunteer, and work is done for free?

  6. Although this is unfortunate but it's definitely a firm step towards getting accepted. I totally agree with @Palaxin and also would like to add that even organisations that have been accepted for multiple years in a row sometimes get rejected for a year.
  7. Great news @Itms! Happy to have had a very small part in this and looking forward to your acceptance.
  8. I mean you can enter this year with one project only mentored by that single mentor.
  9. I am almost sure there is no minimum on the number of mentors.
  10. Thanks feneur for you reply. I surely don't know who could be the chosen mentors and how much time each one would have but I'd like to bring to your attention that many organizations actually states in their SoC projects pages that the mentors will not have much time and actually enforces it as an eligibility criterion to students applying, that the student would be able to adapt to this. Furthermore, many organizations actually selects their students from their active contributors who may not qualify as mentors. Such students would even require less time to mentor. I know this wou
  11. Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school. Currently GSoC19 is in organizations applying phase and I think 0AD will find it useful to participate this year.
