Google "A number of you have emailed us with one question on your minds: Will there be a Summer of Code this year? The answer, as you might have guessed, is yes! The SoC is our program to introduce students to the world of Open Source software development. Last year of the 8744 applicants, 419 students were accepted into the program and more than 80% of them succeeded, which means they received the full stipend of $4500. As of today, we're taking in applications from mentoring organizations, so watch that list of mentoring organizations grow!"

why not, go ahead, you only live once.

1. way less money
2. risk of not getting in or completing it
3. that'd be screwing over my employer who is also a friend

I'm kinda surprised this is actually only getting underway now. I finish exams in a week and I like to know by this point what my summer's going to hold so I had my job locked up months ago. What time did they start taking applications last year?
