Check out last year's ideas Develop/GSOC/2015Ideas.
Target improvements for 2016 (in part lesson learned from apply and great feedback from Nicole Deflaux and colleagues at Google Genomics.
- Exciting intro at the top of the ideas page.
- We tried to use numbers and metrics in GSOC 2015 application, try to replicate that in that ideas page.
- Each project should start with a very simple and impactful "why" statement. Highlight visually somehow.
- Hopefully we will have migrated to a django-based wiki that will allow us to have the best of both worlds (polished visually, user editable).
