Summer of Code

Gary Price points to Google’s Summer of Code, which reads: “This Summer, don’t let your programming skills lie fallow...Use them for the greater good of Open Source Software and computer science! Google will provide a $4500 award to each student who successfully completes an open source project by the end of the Summer.”

The Google PageRank status has been down for a while, but is now showing again. I’m waiting for a reply from Google on this. [Thanks Alek O.]
