WSUV computer scientists Google up summer project



Salmon Creek — You can play in the sun during the summer, or you can have real fun — writing computer code. Two computer scientists from Washington State University Vancouver have been chosen out of thousands of applicants to participate in the 2013 Google Summer of Code program, which offers students a $5,000 stipend to write open-source code. Graduate student Bo Wang’s project is a mobile application that helps scientists plan field research, share information in the field and analyze data in real time. He chose WSUV assistant professor David Chiu as his Google Summer of Code mentor.
