18:29 Berry joined #bioperl
18:30 Berry Is there anyone available for questions regarding Google Summer of Code and then specifically for bioperl?
18:30 leprevost pyrimidine: got it!
18:31 scottcain Paging rbuels for Berry ...
18:32 Berry thank you scottcain
18:32 rbuels erm.  pyrimidine too!
18:32 rbuels not just me!
18:33 Berry rbuels, I am orientating myself on the Google summer of code project. Not sure if I am at the right address but I figured I would try IRC ;)
18:34 rbuels Berry: sure, that's reasonable
18:35 Berry Thing is. I am uncertain on how to proceed. How does one actually apply? My professor at Uni pointed it out to us. And it sounded interesting enough.
18:37 rbuels Berry: ah. the application process is through google
18:38 * rbuels adds the link to the FAQ under 'how to apply' on the obf gsoc page
18:38 Berry But I contact one of the participating project first right?
18:38 rbuels Berry: yeah, the idea is that you are in contact with the mentors and talking about stuff before you actually write the final application
18:39 Berry Do I stand a chance? I mean are you already crowded with applicants?
18:40 rbuels Berry: OBF usually gets around 30-40 applications and accepts 5 or 6.  but many of those applications are not very well-done
18:40 rbuels so yeah, you stand a chance.
18:41 Berry Okay, So what is a 'well done' application is my next question. Is it actually that people did not accepted because the did not fill in the forms correctly and 6 happen to do so. Or is it a bit more strict then that ;)
18:41 Berry the = they
18:43 rbuels Berry: a well-done application has good spelling and grammar, lays out in some detail exactly what the applicant intends to do over the summer, and meshes well with what the mentors are interested in mentoring.
18:44 rbuels i.e. if somebody writes a really good application for adding a really powerful star-charting functionality to BioPerl, well ...  probably not.
18:44 Berry Does previous work experience / current degree (Msc Bioinformatics, Wageningen) help?
18:44 rbuels Berry: sure, of course
18:59 Berry rbuels, i switched to the #obf-soc channel by the way. I thought it would be more appropriate then flooding the main bio-perl channel with my questions on GsoC
19:00 bull_serg joined #bioperl
19:00 rbuels Berry: yeah, sorry, had somebody come into my office just now
