We’re looking forward for all these projects. Following the timeline we have the Community Bonding Period now. All students will be introduced to their organisation and their specific project. The projects will start latest at May 14. That’s when the coding period starts. There are several evaluations and the last Coding Period will end on August 6. After submitting the final evalulations by mentors and students the final results will be announced on August 22.

Stay tuned, all of the students will write about their project at this place. There will also be talks on events like the Wireless Meshup, Chaos Communcation Congress and other related events.
