Hello ITP students,
I wanted to send an announcement out about Google Summer of Code
(GSOC). 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. Many interesting open
source projects are a part of GSOC, including some affiliated with ITP
alum/staff/faculty. One project is Clojure, developed by David Nolen:
Another such project is Processing, which I’m involved with.
If you are interested in participating, the FAQ, sign-up and apply.
This is a great opportunity to be paid to work on interesting projects
that are developed, for the most part, by volunteers. If you are
accepted, the stipend is $5,000.
Processing is looking for proposals related to creating tools and
Android modes. If you have specific questions, you can post on the
Processing forum or write me directly. Here are the relevant links:
