Students Announced for Google Summer of Code 2016
The list of students selected for Google Summer of Code 2014 has been announced by Google. Among the 1206 students selected, 4 of them will be working on MuseScore this summer!
Project: Improving default playback
Project: Semi real time MIDI note entry
Peter Jonas (shoogle) will implement a new method of entering notes into MuseScore via a computer or MIDI keyboard that is more natural to musicians than the existing “step-time” method. The new method will allow the user to play the piece into to the computer as though they were giving a live performance, but steps are taken to ensure the accuracy of the resulting notation. This would make the process of entering notes significantly faster. He will be mentored by Nicolas Froment (lasconic).
Project: Voice extraction and implode/explode
Follow the students
Now the community bonding period officially starts. Students will get to know their mentors and prepare for the program by reading documentation, hanging out in the developer IRC channel (#musescore on freenode.net), and familiarising themselves with MuseScore. They will also introduce themselves to the community on the forum or on the developer mailing list.
For more information on the work undertaken by these students for MuseScore, see our dedicated page (which will be completed by the students in the coming days).
