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.

  1. 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.

  2. was this a presentation at the University of Helsinki?

    at first i thought he was talking to a bunch of high schoolers, but now it seems like he was just using simpler english for the finns…

  3. I found your site while browsing on google and read a few of your other articles too. I’ve just added you to my yahoo rss Reader. Just wanted to say” keep up the good work” and congrats on a job well done! I am looking forward to reading more from you in the future.
