I wish you all the best for 2020!
We're planning to apply for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) again. GSoC is
a program by Google to bring student developers into Open Source projects.
tl;dr: Google pays students for 3 months in summer developing software
for an open source project. Therefore we need to collect ideas for
possible projects. People from the projects will act as mentors for
students. If you want to know more about that, please visit
Freifunk acts as umbrella organization since 2008 for several projects
like OpenWRT, ninux, qaul.net
, retroshare, wlan slowenija,
To apply as organization we need a list of project ideas, we collect at
. Now it's the best time to update or add
ideas. This can be done via github:
The application period will start on January 14. The best case would be
if you add your ideas until this deadline :) You can find the complete
timeline at https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/#timeline
If you know people within your community that would be interested in
mentoring projects, feel free to distribute this email. Also, if you
know students that would be interested in doing projects for one of our
organizations, please tell them!
If you have any questions, just send me an email!
