The Open Bioinformatics Foundation has been accepted as a mentoring organization for this summer’s Google Summer of Code. Our list of project ideas and mentors is linked from the O|B|F GSoC page.
Student applications must be submitted to Google by April 9, 2010, see the official GSoC 2010 FAQ. That is less than three weeks away!
Students, have a look at that wiki page, contact the project you’re interested in working with, and get rolling on that application post-haste. A good GSoC application takes quite a bit of thought and effort to put together. Students are encouraged to get help from mentors to put together a good application.
Google Summer of Code is a Google-sponsored student internship program for open-source projects, open to students from around the world (not just US residents). Students are paid a $5,000 USD stipend to work as a developer on an open-source project for the summer. For more on GSoC, see the official GSoC 2010 FAQ.
Thanks to all who helped make OBF’s application to GSoC a success, and let’s have a great, productive summer of code!
