Cesium was accepted to Summer of Code in Space 2013 - a program run by the European Space Agency that offers eligible students stipends over the summer to write code for space-related open source projects. We see this as a great way to grow the Cesium community and help students gain experience and make an impact.

Students interested in working on Cesium as part of Summer of Code in Space can apply using the form on the SOCIS website. We have posted a list of potential project ideas, but are also open to original project proposals. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their project ideas and ask questions on the Cesium forum or contact the project mentor(s) listed on the ideas page. The deadline for student applications is August 4th.

To strengthen their proposals and become familiar with the Cesium API, students should: * Read through the Contributor’s Guide to set up a development environment. * Look through the list of issues for beginners, complete list of issues, or roadmap for areas that need more work and open a pull request with changes.

Please note, developers must submit a Contributor License Agreement (CLA) before any contributed code is accepted. For details, see the requirements for contributing.
