Google Summer of Code 2011

1 min read

This year's Google Summer of Code participants have been accepted and students are being encouraged to apply at the GSOC website.

On the Content management / Wiki front, accepted projects for this year include: Drupal, Dokuwiki, MoinMoin, Moodle, Plone, Typo3, WordPress and XWiki.

For those of you who may be unaware of the Google Summer of Code. Here's how it's described on their website:

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We have worked with several open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together over 4,500 students and more than more than 4,000 mentors & co-mentors from over 85 countries worldwide, all for the love of code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.

Congratulations to all accepted organizations. Now it is time for the students to submit their proposals to the accepted mentoring organizations via the Google Summer of Code program website from today through Friday, April 8th 19:00 UTC. For the past 10 days students have had the opportunity to review the Ideas pages for this year’s 175 accepted projects and to research which projects they would like to contribute to for this year’s Google Summer of Code.
