So now we are searching for students that would like to hack on one of our proposed projects from May 23rd – August 22nd (fulltime, 40h/week) being payed by Google (5000$ on success). Sounds like a fair deal, doesn’t it? 😉
There are even some days left to propose a new project to hack on! In that case we would try to find a suitable mentor from our community to get you started.
There are quite some interesting project proposals on our gsoc2011 wiki page, reaching from build service projects to SUSE Studio tools and distribution specific tools, as well as cross-distribution efforts.
I would like to mentor a student in the OBS Mobile project which will create a nice interface to use the buildservice from your handheld. So if you are skilled in web technologies (jquery-mobile, rails) please apply and get the chance to hack this summer of code on this exciting project!
To get in contact with the openSUSE community please join channel #opensuse-project on freenode, or our project mailinglist at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you to get started.
