 * [http://molviz.cs.toronto.edu/molviz MolViz] is a project to incorporate head tracking input into an existing Molecular Visualization program, [http://pymol.sourceforge.net/ PyMol]. This is accomplished through a plugin written in Python to control the molecule's position using the existing [http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/Main_Page PyMol API]. Related projects that would benefit the PSF could include:
   * Improving the existing [http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/ImmersiveViz PyMol plugin] for more precise control of the environment.
   * Developing new input drivers for the Wiimote form of control. This would require some bluetooth hacking.
   * Writing other forms of input in Python, such as fisheye head tracking, IR webcam tracking, etc (refer to the end of this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncShaY4VSac video]] for a better description).

This page coordinates the [http://code.google.com/soc/ Google Summer of Code] projects involving Python and mentored by the Python Software Foundation (PSF).

The 2008 PSF SoC coordinator is JamesTauber (jtauber at jtauber dot com). Contact him if you have any questions.

Prospective Students

If you are a student interested in working on core Python development or on a project that helps the Python community, we'd love to have you apply to the Python Software Foundation for this year's Google Summer of Code.

You should join the [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-general soc2008-general] mailing list and take a look at the Project Ideas section below.

Students should read ["/Expectations"] to understand what is expected of them.

Prospective Mentors

Prospective mentors should join both the [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-general soc2008-general] and [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-mentors soc2008-mentors] lists. Once you've been approved for the soc2008-mentors mailing list, you should introduce yourself and what project areas you can help mentor. Contact JamesTauber if you have any questions.

Project Ideas

Other Python-Related Organizations

The organizations for 2008 have not yet been announced by Google but last year other organizations beside PSF who did Python-related work included: Zope, Plone, wxPython, Django, Bazaar, SCons, Thousand Parsec and MoinMoin. I will update this list with links once Google has announced the list of organizations for 2008.

If you are applying as an organization and have projects involving Python, please contact JamesTauber so we can work more closely together.
