Supporting students in open source software development

Google Summer of Code, our program to introduce students to open source software development, is now in full swing for 2009. Over the past four years, we’ve paired nearly 2,500 graduates with more than 2,500 mentors from industry to academia, with some spectacular results: millions of lines of source code produced and over $15M in funding provided to open source development. This year student participants have more than 150 open source software and technology–related projects to choose from when submitting their applications, from operating systems to content management systems.
