Title: Student programmers: Google Summer of Code 2007
Post by: TranzNDance on March 07, 2007, 06:33:31 am
Hey students!

This year, the Coppermine dev team is going to participate in Google's Summer of Code (http://code.google.com/soc/). Students can submit their applications via the GSoC web app between March 14-24 26, 2007. We wanted to give you a heads-up so you have time to think about applying. Students will get $4500 at the end of the summer.

We have published a list of suggested tasks so that students can have some ideas on what to do:

It's official. Google has published the list of participating mentor organizations:  Coppermine's profile page (http://code.google.com/soc/coppermine/about.html).

Due Date


The last day to submit the student application is March 24. I forgot where I found the due time for the organization application so I can't confirm it for the student application, but the application should be submitted by 5 PM PDT.

Good Luck! Thanks for considering Coppermine.

FYI: The project ideas page is all white for me (tested in FF and IE).
I'd fix it ASAP before the application deadline.

Maybe we should continue the discussion on the forum if there is vandalism on google's docs pages.
