GSoC - one day to go for your application

2010-04-08 14:37
If you are a student interested in participating in Google Summer of Code: Registration closes tomorrow (as in "April 9, 19:00 UTC"). You hopefully published and discussed your proposal at your favourite project already so you have a clear plan of where to go and which milestones to achieve in summer.

If you are interested in Apache Mahout: Yes, as last years, we are again looking for students willing to work on awesome student projects this summer. Several core Mahout developers have signed up as mentors for GSoC. With Robin one of our former GSoC students now has turned into a mentor: It's always amazing to watch students stick with the project and continue contributing valuable input.

So in case you would love to learn more on machine learning, train your software development skills and work with great people on your favourite problem, do not forget to submit your project proposal until tomorrow.

As published on the Google Open Source blog the application period for mentoring organizations for GSoC starts now. The ASF is already in the process of applying. If you are a student, looking for an interesting project to work on during the coming summer - you might consider participating in GSoC. It does give you are great opportunity to get in touch with successful free software projects, learn how to work in global teams, improve your communication skills and last but not least show and publish your fantastic coding skills.

If you want to learn more on Why you should contribute to open source, the article by Shalin Shekhar Mangar is a great summary of some of the reasons why people work on open source projects.
