Google Summer of Code winds up again...

Looks like it's about time for the tenth annual Google Summer of Code. This awesome program pays students whose applications are accepted $5500 during the summer to work on open source code with one of about 200 participating organizations. For the last nine years, Portland State University has been one of these organizations, with yours truly as lead Organization Administrator (for the last bunch of those years, with the assistance of David Percy): I'm hoping we can make it year 10! I'm supposed to put in the Organization Application this week. I'm aiming for tomorrow, but there's a lot to prepare, so it may be Tuesday before I push the button. For one thing, our Google/PSU SoC website needs a lot of updating and work.

Kudos to Google for funding this awesome program, and to the many wonderful mentors and students I've gotten to work with. Fob
