Date: Sat, 17 Mar 2012 06:41:07 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Cc: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com, john-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Google Summer of Code 2012 (GSoC) Hi, As many of you are aware, Openwall participated in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) last year. We worked with 5 students under the GSoC program, we got useful stuff done (with some of it being in mainline Linux kernels and in released versions of John the Ripper now), and we met new people some of whom are now involved with our projects. So we're going to do it again: Openwall is a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2012. http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2012/openwall Here's our ideas page (includes ideas on Owl, John the Ripper, and more): http://openwall.info/wiki/ideas (Some updates to the ideas list are forthcoming.) For those not familiar with Google Summer of Code: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code http://code.google.com/soc/ http://socghop.appspot.com Nmap project (http://nmap.org/soc/) summarizes GSoC as follows: "This innovative and extraordinarily generous program provides $5,000 stipends to 1,000+ college and graduate students to create and enhance open source software during their summer break. Students gain valuable experience, get paid, strengthen their resume, and write code which will be distributed freely and used by millions of people!" We'd like to hear from students interested in working on any of the ideas or on their own "creative and relevant idea". Per GSoC 2012 timeline, students now have 10 days to approach us (and/or other GSoC mentoring organizations) to informally discuss and propose projects, and then another 10 days to apply under the GSoC program formally: http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/events/google/gsoc2012 March 17-25: Would-be student participants discuss application ideas with mentoring organizations. March 26: Student application period opens. April 6: Student application deadline. Please do contact us if you're interested. Alexander
