Summer of Code 2006 is a program that offers student developers stipends to create new open source programs or to help currently established projects. Google will be working with a variety of open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several hundred projects over a three-month period. The inaugural instance of the program, which took place last summer, brought together 400 students and 40 mentoring organizations from 49 countries. We’d like to include even more organizations and participants this year.
Summer of Code is open to most students at universtities and colleges around the world.
Thanks to Eugene Lazutkin of Dojo for pinging us. Eugene also noted Django has an Ajax-related Summer of Code project as well. I couldn’t spot any other obviously Ajax-related projects in the list, although the Mediawiki announcement has an interesting caution:
Hi folks, please don’t add “AJAX” and “WYSIWYG” back again. “AJAX” refers to a large number of small, isolated potential projects which are too small for SoC.
