The Task

We want to build a complete profiler tool. During Google Code-in we created several proofs of concept, so we know it's possible, and we also know that it's a really good idea that got popular really fast. For reference, as you can see in the article linked above, five high school students created each their own implementation (by themselves) in around one month with really impressive results.

You can take their existing work (it's open-source after all) and build upon it, or you can do your own thing. But of course, your product must demonstrate GSoC quality - you'll be working full-time for 3 months :-)


This is another potential source of inspiration:

Qualification tasks

In order to qualify for our projects, you must complete a qualification task or accrue sufficient qualification points from GitHub issues.

Take a look at this page for tasks oriented for people who are working on new projects like this one. Alternatively, you can go the traditional route of fixing GitHub issues on the main CCExtractor project, which is written in C. You can find more information about this here.
