Google Summer Of Code 2007

March 21, 2007 – 1:45 pm | by Bill

I’m a full time student who dabbles in coding from time to time, so when I logged into my Wordpress dashboard last night, the Google Summer Of Code caught my eye.

Evey summer for the past few years, Google has awarded students cash prizes for working on open source projects. Some of these projects included FreeBSD, Ubuntu, Debian, Apache, PHP, and Jabber.

This is a pretty good deal for both students and open source projects, as the projects get more open source created, while the students get some cash and a great resume builder.

To find out more, check out the Google Summer Of Code homepage.

    That thing sounds really interesting to me.. altho I’m happy with my business so I wouldn’t do it, but if I were a student I’d be all over it.

    I’d be all over it too, if I code code PHP very well. :) I’m working on it though.
