Edmund Lee (Knowledge Transfer Manager at English Heritage) announced on the Antiquist list that the Arches project has been accepted onto the Google Summer of Code 2014. This is great news and a great opportunity for students to get involved with this trailblazing Getty Conservation Institute / World Monuments Fund project through the mega event that is the Summer of Code – a double whammy!
Antiquistas may recall discussion of the Arches open source software development project funded by the U.S.-based Getty Conservation Institute and World Monuments Fund.
The project has been accepted into the Google Summer of Code 2014, an opportunity for student programmers to apply to work with open source projects, see here for general information and here for details of the Arches project involvement.
Please do pass on details of this opportunity on to your contacts in university departments with an interest in heritage computing or computer science generally.
Students can register to apply for a place on the Google Summer of Code from March 10th onwards at the GSOC2014 website.
Thanks to Edmund Lee for sharing this: It is a great opportunity for those interested in programming/coding and heritage. Definitely one not to be missed!
