Learn how GSoC works and read through the student manual
If you are considering applying, we have a list of ideas you can choose from. We'd love if you apply with your own idea. Don’t hesitate to contact the potential mentors from the ideas list or contact us via IRC (#musescore on freenode.net), via the developer mailing list. We also have a document listing the Steps Toward a Successful Application, make sure to read it!
Don't let yourself be scared off by the knowledge prerequisites; you don’t need to be an expert in all domains, and there is some time for learning within the GSoC period. However, familiarity with Qt/C++ and interest in music and music notation will be helpful. If you still have doubts, read Am I good Enough?
