Google Summer of Code and Outreachy
I've started preparing some ideas for Google Summer of Code projects I'd be willing to help mentor this year and one of them is for ham radio, with a focus on software defined radio (SDR).
The Fedora Project is pleased to announce that this summer will mark our TENTH year participating in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program! We are happy to be accepted again as an organization this year and are looking forward to working with many bright and excited students across the world on many parts of Fedora.
As part of its diversity outreach initiatives, Debian will be participating in the upcoming 12th round (May - August 2016) of Outreachy, an internship program open worldwide to women (cis and trans), trans men and genderqueer people, as well as nationals and residents of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.
If you are a student looking to participate in this year's Google Summer of Code or a woman or other under-represented group in tech, the Outreachy deadline is too coming up.
Student applications for GSoC 2016 are running from 14 to 25 March. There are a lot of great participating 2016 organizations from Wayland, GNOME, LLVM, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, GitHub, GNU, Inkscape, Mozilla, and many others. If you are a student looking to get involved with GSoC 2016 for spending your summer while earning a few bucks, visit the GSoC web-site.
