    Default Google Summer of Code

    Hi,

    I'm really interested to participate to the pentaho project through the google summer of code : http://code.google.com/soc/

    I think it could be a good idea to register the pentaho project and some idea from the roadmap on the next google summer of code. I'm sure there is a lot of student interested to participate.

    Regards

    Just follow the link in the initial posting ( http://code.google.com/soc/ ) and read through these pages. The first question in the FAQ will then tell you this:

    What is Google Summer of Code?

    Google Summer of CodeTM is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. Google will be working with a several open source, free software and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period. Historically, the program has brought together over 1,000 students with over 100 open source projects, to create hundreds of thousands of lines of code. The program, which kicked off in 2005, is now in its third year, following on from a very successful 2006.

    While the majority of past student participants were enrolled in university Computer Science and Computer Engineering programs, GSoCers come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, from computational biology to mining engineering. Many of our past participants had never participated in an open-source project before GSoC; others used the GSoC stipend as an opportunity to concentrate fully on their existing open source coding activities over the summer. Several of our 2005 students went on to become mentors in 2006.
    Have fun,

    PS: Is now the correct time to say: Google would be your friend if you would start using it?
