Apache Software Foundation in the GSoC again this year


ASF in the GSoC

I received a message now from Sally Khudairi, in behalf of the Apache Software Foundation announcing that they will be participating in the Google Summer of Code again this year:

I let you the completed message:

The Apache Software Foundation will be participating in the Google Summer of Code again this year as a mentoring organization.

Google Summer of Code is a program where students work on open source projects backed by a stipend granted by Google. The Apache Software Foundation has been participating in the program since its inception in 2005.

Each year, 30-40 students are guided by volunteer mentors from various Apache communities. During the summer they learn what it means to participate in a diverse open source community and develop open source software “The Apache Way”. Many of past students are now active contributors to our projects.

This year we hope to build on our previous successes and again build student interest and enthusiasm in The Apache Software Foundation. Our list of project ideas (at http://s.apache.org/gsoc2012tasks) already contains over 100 ideas spanning more than 25 Apache projects. But that’s only what we have come up with. A lot of students have their very own itch to scratch and approach our projects with their own ideas.

If you are enrolled as a university student and always wanted to get involved with Apache, here’s is your chance. Browse our ideas list, approach the projects you are most interested in, discuss your ideas, get involved, code the summer away, and at the end, get a nice paycheck from Google!

Final Thoughts

So, if you are a University student, you could consider to participate on the GSoC mentored by brilliant ASF minds; I think that It’s a great opportunity to work on a real project, used by hundreds and thousands of users like Apache HTTP server, Camel, Hadoop and its ecosystem, Cassandra, HBase, TrafficServer, and many more. So, What do you waiting for? Best wishes and good look.

Happy Hacking !!!
