Hi all, Just a event promotion from us, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Open
Source Software Group.



*Want to write open source code?
Want to make money USD 5000 with you code?
Want to do both?*

Historically, *Google Summer of Code* has brought together nearly 3,400
students with over 200 open source projects to create millions of lines of
code. We’re looking for
students to join in making 2010 the best Summer of Code yet! Every
student contributors will be offered a 5,000 USD stipend, enabling them to
focus on their coding projects for three months.

The Google Summer of Code (GSOC) program is designed to encourage student
participation in open source development. Kicking off in 2005, the program
has several goals:

  • Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source
  • Provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity
to do work  related to their academic pursuits during the summer
  • Give students more exposure to real-world software development scenarios
    distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing-list
etiquette, etc.)
  • Get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all
  • Help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and

Student applications will be accepted from March 29–April 9, 2010!

For an exposure about the GCOS 2010, we as UTM Open Source Software Group
will organize the GSOC 2010 Light Talk @UTM. We will invite experienced
participant and also a GSOC mentor, Devtar Singh to explain about the
program, share his experiences and strategy to be selected for the program.
