As it stands, all Google Summer of Code 2013 proposals are in and we are busy digging in to them. Very happy with all the contributions people have made, we ended up with almost 70 applications this year so please sit tight as there are a lot of very talented people who have submitted proposals.
It has been another fantastic week for SimpleCV! Today marks the deadline for Google Summer of Code proposal submissions. A number of promissing new students have submitted a bunch of great new features. These include:
SimpleCV had a fantastic week. We had a record number of pull requests thanks to our wonderful and talented Google Summer of Code students. Our prospective students have done a great job of helping us fix bugs and release new features. There is still a week to go before the application deadline. Home highlights of the past couple of weeks include:
We recently re-skinned the SimpleCV website and did some minor house keeping to the content and organization. Our goal was two fold, we wanted move to a more minimal design, and we also wanted to add some features that would allow us to show more user generated content. SimpleCV has now been in existence for over two years and we are starting to see an overwhelming number of really cool user projects. We wanted to create a place where we could share these projects with the greater community.
We just submitted our application for Google Summer of Code. Read more about it here.
We just returned from PyCon and we wanted to open-source all of the materials from our tutorial so those who couldn't attend could still learn about SimpleCV. All of the course materials are available at this github repository. Posted below are the slides from the presentation as well as the video. If you want you can download the repository and follow along in the iPython notebook while watching the video and reading the slides.
We had the honor of presenting both a talk and tutorial at PyCon this year. The video for the talk was recently posted and we wanted to share it with the community as we think they are awesome learning resources.
So first off, the SimpleCV team would like to aplogize for waiting a while to give a blog post update. Our last blog post update was over 4 months ago, and typically when you visit an Open Source project you like to see frequent updates to know the project is being worked on.
