Google summer of code 2009

This year’s Google summer of code has been kicked off with a fairly substantial amount of participants. You can still submit an application until April 3rd, to join the roughly 2,500 “graduates”. For those who don’t know what it is, the Google summer of code pairs developing programmers with open source projects and funding. It’s a great program, resulting in advances in some programs that we follow. We’ve talked about several of the groups that will be participating this year, such as the NUI group, rockbox, openstreetmap, and videoLan.

    nice, i didnt know they did stuff like this. i hope videolan gets funding. i love vlc, i hope they can work out the bugs in the new version and make it a little more user friendly. i still have yet to figure out how to stream a video to 1 person over the internet.
