This year OpenNebula has been selected as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization. GSoC is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. During the last six years GSoC has brought together nearly 3,400 students and more than 3,000 mentors from nearly 100 countries worldwide. For more information about the program take a look to the GSoC FAQ.
We are very excited about this great opportunity to work with very talented and self-motivated students. During the summer the students will be part of our community, and will have the opportunity to learn the basics of virtualization, cloud computing and OpenNebula.
If you are a student, and would be interested in participating in GSoC with OpenNebula as your mentoring organization, please take a look at our GSoC Ideas page. This page lists projects that OpenNebula has proposed for GSoC, but it is not a closed list. If you have an idea for a cool project that uses or extends OpenNebula, please contact one of the OpenNebula GSoC mentors. Also, if you are teaching distributed/cloud computing or related courses please share this information with your students.
Once you are ready to submit an application, remember that you must do so before April 9th through the GSoC webapp. So come and join us this summer to improve the OpenNebula Cloud Toolkit!
