Scientific Research Collaborations

Posted 29 April 2009 - 04:55 AM

This summer I was planning on doing research for conducting scientific models to simulate super massive black holes, however sadly I didn't get accepted as the response to this project as you may have assumed was quite overwhelming.

However, I really kind of got my hopes up on it and since my summer semester will be a bit lighter I still want to find a way to be a programmer and contribute in the name of science.

With that said, do you guys know of any open-source science oriented projects needing programmers? Perhaps a science-based research program in need of programmers? Or just in general any ideas on something similar or even your own experiences with things of this nature.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You've probably already tried this, but you might want to check out SourceForge. It's an entire site devoted to open source programs. The problem is, most of the projects are either dead and forgotten, and the ones that aren't usually don't want new recruits messing up their work. Maybe you'll get lucky though :)
