Hello all! I'm applying on this year's edition of Google Summer of Code, so I thought I could introduce myself here.
For those who've never heard of it, Google Summer of Code (GSoC in short) is a program where students are financed by Google to participate in various open source projects during the summer. I participated last year and it was a great experience, so I'm applying to be a part of it again this year.
The project I want to work on is the OpenLayers - Google Maps integration library. Its main objective is to let the user add a Google Maps basemap to an OpenLayers map, while keeping the OL features synchronised with the basemap. You can find the project on Github by following this link, and a blog post detailing the objectives of the library here.
I am already in contact with the leader of the project, but I hope I can get input from the OpenLayers community as well on the possible objectives for this summer.
