Google launches Summer of Code

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 01 2005 @ 13:43 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google unveiled the Summer of Code, a Google program designed to introduce students to the world of Open Source Software Development.

This Summer, don't let your programming skills lie fallow...Use them for the greater good of Open Source Software and computer science! Google will provide a $4500 award to each student who successfully completes an open source project by the end of the Summer. (payment details can be found in FAQ)

By pairing applicants up with the proven wisdom and experience of established prominent open source organizations (listed below), we hope to make great software happen. If you can't come up with a great idea to submit, a number of our organizations have made idea lists available. More info at Google
