For obvious reasons, I'm particularly interested in this one. Do
I take it right that the project will be based on this research
I would be very happy to offer advice and support for this
project, if that would be welcome.
They faced very stiff competition, and unfortunately we had to
turn down a number of very good proposals. Perhaps we should
have been more greedy and asked for six or seven slots.
Personally I'm a little sad that the flatbuffers project was
rejected -- it would have made an interesting complement to the
existing protocol buffers library, dproto.
I hope the community will extend a warm welcome to these
students, and we welcome all of your efforts in helping these
students achieve success in the coming months.
Finally, thanks to all our mentors who put in hours of work in
evaluating the proposals to this point.
This is fantastic work -- thank you everyone!
