Summer of Code 2013
GNOME has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2013!
We need help to make GNOME GSoC this year a success again. During the application period, please guide students in creating proposals for your project ideas and help them make small contribution to the module they are applying to work on.
If you are a student, you should learn about GNOME and our requirements for GSoC participation, talk to the mentors for the ideas that interest you, make coding contributions to the module you decide to work on, and create your proposal. Browse the ideas on the ideas page, but don't feel limited by them. You can discuss other ideas you have with module maintainers. Base any ideas you propose on the research about the needs of a particular module and make sure there is a mentor interested in guiding you in implementing this idea before basing your application on it.
Feel free to join the #soc channel on GIMPNet (irc.gnome.org)! If you have any questions, please read Google SoC's frequently asked questions first. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to contact GNOME Google Summer of Code administrators ZeeshanAli, AlexandreFranke, ChristopheFergeau, FabianoFidencio, DanielSiegel or MarinaZhurakhinskaya. You can reach all of us at firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail alias.
