It's been way too long since I showed up here. I have great news!
I am glad to say I will take part in Google Summer of Code with SimpleCV again this year! Last year's program taught me quite much, and it might have polished up my resume just enough for another awesome opportunity:
I've been accepted for a one-year scholarship at Cornell University starting next Fall, through Brazil's Science Without Borders program. In a couple of months, I'll be an Undergraduate (transfer) student of Computer Science at Cornell university. Yay!
