+ - Google Summer of Code 2011->

boltrix writes "Since 2005, Google has led a wonderful open source program called Summer of Code. The goal of that program is to promote open source software development. Google invites open source organizations to propose ideas that could benefit the world, and asks the organizations to mentor students to develop these ideas and released them as FOSS (free and open source software). When a student is selected for the program, they work during their summer vacation and receive $5000, a t-shirt, swags and a participation certificate from Google. (...) To give you a better perspective about this wonderful effort, here’s an introductory video from one of the participating mentoring organizations for this year’s program. () And here’s a video from Chris DiBona, the manager for the program at Google, on the history and the impact Google’s Summer of Code has had on the open source community."
