Google Summer Of Code 2009 – Real Soon Now!

March 6, 2009

The 2009 logo is fantastic, isn’t it? Flower power is not dead apparently.

Google Summer Of Code 2009 starts soon, open source organizations can sign up starting March 9th (a very important date planet-wide anyway), and students can sign up starting March 23rd.

An A4 flyer is available to display in your school, or anywhere geeks graze.

Assuming we’re accepted as an organization, projects of the Apache Software Foundation will be listed on our wiki. I’m probably going to suggest one or two Sling-related projects.

Philip Johnson’s video presentation (below) gives a good overview of the program and of its requirements, for students.

April 22, 2008

The list of accepted students was published yesterday, for Sling we’re happy to welcome Janandith who’s tasked with making Scala usable in Sling.
