Improving voice, video and chat communication with free software
Description of the project: have a look through the projects completed during GSoC 2016, extending any of these projects would be possible. Also look at the project ideas at project.freertc.org. Filter the list using the tags for programming languages you are most familiar with (for example, C, C++, Python, Java, PHP). In your application, specify which of the ideas you would like to work on. Some of these are only small projects and you will need to propose doing more than one of them during the internship. When thinking about which task you would like to work on, it is important to think about how it will be used by the Debian community and mention this in your application.
How to contact the mentor: join the Free RTC mailing list and send a message introducing yourself. Put [Outreachy] in the subject line of your message.
Confirmed co-mentors: Daniel Pocock
- Do you know anybody who is willing to be part of the mentoring team? If so, please ask them to contact me.
Deliverables of the project: completing one or more of the issues in project.freertc.org
What the intern will learn: helping people to avoid using proprietary communications tools like Skype, Viber and ?WhatsApp. Learning about SIP, XMPP and peer-to-peer technology.
