Media Cloud is excited to be participating in Google Summer of Code this year through the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program in which Google offers students stipends to work on Open Source projects. Media Cloud received valuable contributions from our students when we participated in 2009 and 2010 and we’re looking forward to this year’s program.
For students who are interested in working on Media Cloud through Google Summer of Code, we have put together a list of possible Media Cloud projects here. There is also a Berkman Wiki listing Berkman specific GSoC requirements as well a number of other interesting Berkman projects also participating in GSoC. Finally, the GSoC homepage contains detailed information about GSoC policies and eligibility requirements.
The final application deadline is April 6 at 19:00 UTC but early applications are preferred.
