Google Summer of Code 2009
As in previous years, Google will again be holding their Google Summer of Code event this year. The event, originally launched in 2005, is a contest which offers university students stipends to write and develop code for various open source projects.
Organisations can apply to be mentors to help the students with their tasks during the event. On March 18th Google will announce the list of accepted mentor organisations. Five days later Google will begin taking student applications for this years event.
