After a very successful GSoC 2013 we will try to participate again, i.e. become a mentoring organisation. That means (if we get accepted) that students can work on SuperTuxKart and receive money for it. They will be mentored by one of our experienced developers, and get some good work experience to start their career. Note that while SuperTuxKart is a game appealing to younger audiences, the code base is rather complicated, and our suggested tasks will certainly challenge students.

Our [[GSoC_topics_2014 | list of ideas]] or suggestions is online. Be aware that this is just a list of suggestions, and that students are welcome to apply with their own ideas. However, the number of experienced mentors is somewhat limited, and our list of ideas was chosen since those tasks would be most beneficial for the development of SuperTuxKart. If you apply with your own idea, please make sure to discuss this with us beforehand.
