Welcome!

BeagleBoard.org has applied for participation in Google Code-In 2014. This is the page for collecting ideas for GCI.

Prerequisites

Depending on the level of the task. Beginner level task involving BoneScript, PyBBIO and documentation may be managed with a basic knowledge of JavaScript and Python respectively.

For tasks of the higher level, participating students are expected to be able to sucessfully compile (and subsequently cross-compile) a C program. There are many resources available on the internet to that effect. Those needing further support may ask on the IRC Channel #beagle where community members will be able to guide them through this process.

Where required, students will need to buy their own hardware i.e a BeagleBone Black and any added hardware components like sensors, cameras, displays etc for testing. Due to the nature of the contest, BeagleBoard.org will not be able to provide hardware to the participating students.

BoneScript Tasks

PyBBIO Tasks

BotSpeak Tasks

BBBlfs Tasks

BARD Tasks

BeagleLogic Tasks

Documentation Tasks

Contacts

Google Code-In does not have a specific concept of mentors as Google Summer of Code does. However you can contact any one of these for any help related to the work.
