Google Summer of Code 2013 (due May 3rd)

Posted 23 April 2013 - 10:07 AM

Are any of you getting in on this, or are now just hearing about it and will be getting your application in before next week?

It sounds like a solid opportunity for you still under the school system to get some elusive experience, get paid,, write some code, and do the world some good!

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together nearly 6,000 successful student participants and over 3000 mentors from over 100 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.

It's a really nice idea, but because it's Google I don't we'd get to work on anything that exciting.
They like to keep everything they're working on hush-hush.

Did you read anything about this? It's not you working for google or working on google products, it's google facilitating you working with cool open-source projects. Kind of a hipper internship
