Subject GSoC '09
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2009 09:53:41 GMT
Friends,

GSoC '09 is a go[1], which is great news. According to mail from
Leslie it's a little scaled back this year as you'd expect, but
stipends remain the same ($4500 / student, $500 / org).

I've updated our idea page (http://qpid.apache.org/gsoc.html) and
removed the ones that have already been completed or are no longer
relevant.

If you're a student, and you're looking for a summer job or a master
project, GSoC is a great way to get involved in Open Source software
and earn some money. It also looks good on a CV. The #1 piece of
feedback from mentors about what makes a succesful student last year
was engagement with the community. You don't need to wait until the
program starts up fully to get involved, feel free to download the
code and start hacking. ;)

[1] One of the major feedback points from '08 seems to have been "more
time at the start"
