    Student RTMP experts: earn $5000 in Google Summer of Code

    Jim Salsman

      I'm a new Google Summer of Code mentor for both the Wikimedia Foundation and the R Project, and I'm looking for students with Flex 4 experience who want to make $5000 over the summer adding http://tinyurl.org/osl08 components to Mediawiki.


      If you are a interested student looking for work over the summer, please:


      (1) Make sure you can compile, run, and test http://actionscript.pastebin.com/r9P87093 with mxmlc, and try to figure out how it works.  Maybe clean up the code a little (it was written by a non-native English speaker so things like "level" are spelled "leval" etc.)


      (2) Become familiar with http://www.rtmpd.com/ , Red5


      (3) Read the instructions and FAQ at http://socghop.appspot.com/


      (4) Add your name and either a wiki home page with email enabled, or your email address to: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Summer_of_Code_2010#Student_signup


      (5) Register and submit a student proposal at http://socghop.appspot.com/gsoc/org/list_proposals/google/gsoc2010/wikimedia


      The student application deadline is April 9, but there has been some confusion about time zones with the GSoC management, so my mentor-imposed student deadline for this is April 7.


      Please feel free to forward this announcement to your campus CS and EE undergraduates.


      Thank you and good luck!
