Google Summer of Cods 2008

Hi I think you all already informed abot the opening of Google Summer of codes 2008.Here is its flyer.Take a minute to look at it.

Want to write open source code?
Want to make money?
Want to do both?

In 2007 alone, Google Summer of CodeTM brought together 900 students and nearly
1500 mentors across 90 countries to contribute to over 130 different open source
software projects. We’re looking for mentors and students to join us in making 2008
the best Summer of Code yet! We’ll be offering successful student contributors a
4500 USD stipend, enabling them to focus on their coding projects for three months.
The Google Summer of Code program is designed to encourage student participation
in open source development. Kicking off in 2005, the program has several goals:

●Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development

●Provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity to do
work related to their academic pursuits during the summer

●Give students more exposure to real-world software development scenarios
(e.g., distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing-list etiquette,

●Get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all

●Help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and committers.

Google will accept applications from open source projects from 3 – 12 March 2008.
Student applications will be accepted from 24 – 31 March.
