Finally, here's a heads-up to all the students who
would like to apply to this project: the application deadline is
on April 6th, meaning you should get your project proposals
submitted before then.
I am not sure if the process is exactly the same this year. But
here is the scoring criteria for past years. Some things you might
not think of like the interview or indicating how much time you can
dedicate count for a lot. So I suggest you review the scored items
and make sure you are covered.
Be sure to submit an abstract, a description of the tests
you're willing to take on and a schedule for the conclusion of
the tests. It is also important to mention whether you have
successfully set up the Derby environment and whether you
managed to compile Derby. I would also appreciate if the
applicants send me (off-list, directly to my e-mail address) the
jars resulting from their compilation. To strengthen your
application I also recommend serious applicants to come to our
IRC channel (#derby @ irc.freenode.net
for an informal and quick interview.
If you have developed for Derby before and/or created unit
tests, please mention this in your application.
