About The Project
Project Title and Abstract
Come up with your own project idea, or get inspired by one of the ideas we suggest.
Propose a practical break-down of your task into incremental sub-tasks.
Define the deliverables as precisely as possible.
Schedule & Plan
The recommended granularity of the schedule is the weekly basis. The architectural part of the plan for the application should be at a granularity, that allows for good planning of the project, but don't go into too much detail. Indicate also how many hours you will you dedicate to GSOC, per week.
Final Goal & Outcome
The most important goal for the end of the project is that the resulting implementation can be used and potentially continued by any other RIOT developer. The structure and architecture of the implementation has to be clear and well documented. For projects dealing with network protocols and specifications, interoperability are vital.
