Google Summer of Code 2009 Announced

hugin-logoThis morning Leslie Hawthorn of the Google Open Source Program Office announced that they “have received Executive approval to run Google Summer of Code and the
Google Highly Open Participation Contest once again in 2009”

Given the current economic climate, this is very good news. “Summer of Code will be a bit smaller (targeting ~1000 students this year) so it will likely target fewer organizations (~150). The stipend amounts ($4500 to the successful student and $500 to the organization) will remain unchanged”.

The discussion is on in the Hugin community. Should we participate again? we had two great participations in 2007 and 2008.

If you’re a student looking for an opportunity, most of what has been written for 2008 is still valid today. Join the community, learn how to build the code on your machine, play with it, send a small patch for review. The exact timeline / deadlines will be published soon.

However it is absolutely imperative for us to make clear that there is no guarantee that our organization will be accepted in GSoC2009. And that we cannot in any way guarantee a place for the students in the program just because our organization is accepted into GSoC 2009.

Let’s get it rolling?

  1. If anyone can please tell me when this Google Summer of Code is going to start

  2. Google is the primary source of information. As far as our project goes, we intend to apply for participation as a mentoring organization once again, and I will publish deadlines on this blog.
