In today’s SIG meeting, the group decided to move back our schedule by a month so we can:
- Give mentors more time to generate good ideas;
- Give students more time to generate good proposals;
- Give organizers more time to find sponsors and funding.
The last one is the most important to me. We only have enough funding pledged right now to handle a few student proposals. I’m positive there are people with budget for this and the desire to spend it on summer coding efforts. Now we have a bit more time to find those folks.
I’ll be updating the schedule ASAP, but you can generally figure we’ll be adding 15 to 30 days to each deadline. I’ll send out new announcements to the developer’s list when it is updated.
