Google Summer of Code 2006

May 1st, 2006

Most people have seen it but in case you haven’t, Google is running Summer of Code again this year. There was a lot of good work that went into projects last year, and I’m quite happy with the list of mentoring organizations. Some real surprising names in there (like the Mars Space Flight Facility), but I’m real happy to see Gentoo and MoinMoin added this year. Check out http://code.google.com/soc for more information and full list of mentors.

Hopefully this year there will be better selections of projects. Some groups (like Gaim) had a lot of successful projects that went past the end of the competition, but some groups (*cough* Mozilla) chose projects that either did not complete the task, never went anywhere, or just lacked luster like translation projects. I’m real interested to see what happens with Gentoo, especially with the Gentoo/FreeBSD project.

Good luck to all students involved this year!
