Out of only 10 selected, we're very proud to announce that BRL-CAD is participating in the 2013 Google Code-In (GCI) program! Complementary to the highly successful Google Summer of Code program for university students, GCI is a contest through January 6th encouraging pre-university students (age 13-17) to get involved with open source.
Students work on brief tasks related to code, documentation/training, outreach/research, quality assurance, and user interface. Students completing at least one task receive an official certificate from Google, three or more get a t-shirt, and the most active students contend for a week-long paid trip to Google headquarters in California!
