Google Summer of Code 2024

We are currently in the process of applying for Google Summer of Code 2024.

That doesn’t mean we’ll get accepted as a mentoring organization. So please don’t ask about applying as a contributor yet.

On the other hand, I’m curious for community ideas for needed projects. This isn’t limited to code. I’ll also apply to Google Season of Docs to attract some technical writers / editors.

Some ideas:

  • Implementing simple molecular dynamics (integrators, thermostats, etc.) in the new force field framework
  • Improved rendering, including Geometry Shaders / Depth of Field and dynamic level-of-detail
  • Improved selection / find-and-replace / fill region (e.g., creating shells of nanoparticles)
  • Improved scripting / automation
  • Cartoons for nucleic acids / sugars / polymers
  • Integrated FastAPI results server (with cclib)

What are some big (or small) needs? Projects that you’d like to see or want someone else to build for you? :wink:
