Honestly this is my first time joining GSOC. I have few questions if you don’t mind because I’ve read a lot of stories what should I do to apply but I found variety of things so I’d be pleased if you get this clear to me:
0.Do I have to have a new idea to submit?
1.Do I have to solve a bug (Good first issue) and append it with my proposal?
2.Sometimes when I read your description I fell you just need passion,programming experience knowing that I have good experience in Embedded systems (Several micro controllers interface and worked on autonomous car projects) ,Python and Linux. But sometimes in your http://ardupilot.org/dev for example you seem to need someone who’s life is basically around these projects you know xD and truth to be told I can’t read all your libraries in 5 days and know them “Specially I’m not that good with C++ as much as I’m good with python you’re using C++ right? I saw you need python and linux thought”, this doesn’t imply that I’m not interested (I’m crazy about Embedded systems by the way) but I just wanna know what exactly do you need? I can learn, I’ve taken a lot of courses online specially those from MIT so I have passion to science,ability to learn and search, good skills would that be enough?
