Google Announces “Summer of Code” Initiative for Software Developers

Are you a student who likes to write computer code? Then Google might have a way for you to make some cash.

Just posted on the Google Code web site is info about their new “Summer of Code” intiative that has been setup to “introduce students” to Open Source software.

Students (the FAQ defines students very broadly) who complete an “Open Source” project by September 1st, will earn $4500. This FAQ has all of the details.

Not only will the Summer of Code likely turn out some interesting projects but it’s also:

+ More great publicity for Google (man, they’re good at it)
+ A way for Google to identify people worthy of possible recruitment
