Here’s a gentle reminder that the Google Summer of Code(GSOC) program is starting to accept applications today. If you want your project at Eclipse involved, I highly recommend putting an idea out on Eclipse’s GSOC idea’s page and start idling on #eclipse-soc (hunting for students).
The response so far from students has been amazing… I already have a student helping me hack some Declarative Services (DS) tooling. That happened about 3 days after I posted the idea… phew…!
As a committer, you’ll be amazed what results you can get from the SOC program if you are just willing to give a bit of time to mentor some amazing students. Remember that, “mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” 🙂
