Welcome potential Google Summer of Code 2012 students and mentors!
If you already know what you want to do just create a discussion.
Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers post-secondary student developers ages 18 and older stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We have worked with 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 over 6000 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.
This group is for posting and discussing GSoC project ideas, as well as for general conversation that relates to the SoC. You can also get help on the #drupal-contribute IRC channel on freenode (irc://irc.freenode.net/drupal-contribute).
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SUBMIT PROJECT IDEAS OR TO RE-SUBMIT IDEAS FROM LAST YEAR!
Finally, read HOWTO: Write a Summer of Code application.
We have been looking for information about the existence of procedures to allow well established organizations (such as Drupal) to vouch for smaller organizations to take part of GSoC 2013 (small orgs need vouching from large orgs to get in).Read more
