RSoC We’ve got two pieces of good news for you; the first one is that our RSoC is now live! The second is a bit surprising: we’ve got a GSoC slot!


Thanks to solar designer who offered us to be part of the GSoC, under the umbrella of the Openwall project, we’ve got a slot for a single student to work on radare2 for a couple of months, while being payed $5,500! This is truly amazing, and we’re super-grateful to Openwall and solardiz for this: Thank you very much! Application are starting the 16th of March, and are last until the 27th, so hurry up!


Since our last RSoC was a success, we decided to host a second one despite our surprise-acceptance in the GSoC. The schedule for the RSoC is:

  • March 11: Begin applications
  • May 3: End of application acceptance
  • May 8: Announce of the selected students
  • June 17: Start coding!
  • Sept 16: “Pencils down”
  • Sept 27: Code must be merged into radare2 repo

Like last year, everyone can apply; you don’t need to be a student. If you want to write some code, you’re more than welcome. Unfortunately, to make it happen we need some money, so we’re holding a donation campaign, with the goal of raising 3000 EUR to pay our participants.

You can give us your bitcoins, or use Paypal if you prefer. (Please notice that for legal reasons, the Paypal account is owned by jvoisin, one of the core contributors, since the r2 project doesn’t have a legal entity to represent itself yet.)
