  • What can be achieved in a few weeks of hacking

    I'd say eight weeks of hacking, for an average student.

    And yes, eight weeks of full time hacking. Given that Google are (generously) paying at a rate equivalent to $27,000 per year, my non-humble opinion is that any student not giving their full time attention is slacking. How many other student summer jobs pay $14/hour?

    • Actually, turns out I'm about a year out of date. SoC runs for 3 months [google.com] this year, so that's more like twelve weeks

      I really don't feel that the suggestions are sufficiently epic in scale. I believe we need to think bigger, such as:

      Integrate PPI into Eclipse to provide full Perl refactoring support
      (I've never used or needed to use Eclipse, but I assume that this is plausible and useful from perusing their documentation. See also Perl Needs Better Tools [perl.com])
      Check and when possible close every open Perl bug
