52°North is thrilled to announce that it has been chosen to be a mentoring organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code (GSoC)! GSoC is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. Google pays the stipend recipient $ 5.000,- for 3 months of software development for 52°North this summer. A mentor from a 52°North partner organization supervises the student during this period.
As such, we now look for students who are interested in writing code for various 52°North projects. The overall goals are to improve usability of products and to extend the user base to new domains.
If you are interested in writing code for software developed by the 52°North communities, please have a look at https://wiki.52north.org/bin/view/Main/GSoC2012. Student Application opens on March 26, 2012 at 19:00 UTC. The deadline is April 6, 2012 at 19:00 UTC.
This summer, flip bits not burgers with 52°North!
