As you might know, SageMath is a software system for mathematical computation. Built on Python, it has extensive libraries for numerous areas of mathematics. One of these areas is Matroid Theory, as has been exhibited several times on this blog.
Google Summer of Code is a program where Google pays students to work on open-source software during the summer.
Once again, SageMath has been selected as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code. We’ve had students work on aspects of the Matroid Theory functionality for the past four years. Maybe this year, YOU can join those illustrious ranks! Check out the call for proposals and ideas list. Read the instructions on both pages carefully. Applications open on March 12, so it’s a good idea to start talking to potential mentors and begin writing your proposal!
