We're taking Summer of Code local to university students in Washington, DC. On Thursday we're hosting an event on Google's Summer of Code for Drupal for students interested in participating this year. Past and future participants will be on hand to talk more about Drupal and Google's Summer of Code and to guide students through the application process. Specifically, we'll
- Walk through the application process and deadlines, and give tips on how to get your project accepted
- Help pair students with potential mentors who are experts in areas they want to work in
- Discuss your project ideas and give feedback, and discuss ideas coming from the community
Come out on Thursday, March 20 at 4:00 pm to learn more. I know it's short notice, but the deadlines are coming up fast and the faster you move the more likely your project will be sponsored. We're at 1534 U Street NW, Suite 2 and the closest metro is U Street Cardoza on the green line. Map
If you're looking for a summer internship that will give you the
chance to lead a programming project, work with some of the best open
source developers out there, and make a little money, then you should
look into Google's Summer of Code.
This prestigious program has turned out some very innovative projects
over the past three years and has really helped move forward open
source platforms like Drupal. This year Google will sponsor several projects for Drupal (last year it was 20).
These projects turned out some really great new functionality for Drupal last year and had many local participants - mentors and students. It will be great to get even more local students involved this year.
If you have any questions, email me or post your questions here. See you on Thursday!
