Ever looked at some of the work that google summer of code has accomplished?

Going to check this out…Thanks for the heads up~ Ok, I Googled “Summer Of Code”.

>Snipped/clipped< Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together nearly 2500 successful student participants and 2500 mentors from 98 countries worldwide, all for the love of code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.

Opinion~Pretty awesome opportunity for students.
