This year my company (https://subvisual.co/) will have a student doing his master thesis with us, and need to come up with a topic. I was wondering if there was anything on Rails tangentially related to his areas of expertise that could benefit from a person working on it essentially full time for 6 months or more, for free.
He’s mastering on both distributed systems and parallel computing, as well as Internet of Things and biometric systems. He already has a good familiarity with Ruby and Rails.
So, I’d like to know:
Is there any specific part of rails or feature to be implemented that he could work on?
Is anyone on the core team interested in getting involved with helping him out?
