GSoC and Season of KDE 2010

The accepted students for Google Summer of Code 2010 have just been announced. Congratulations to all of you. Make us proud and rock KDE :)

While Google has been very very very generous this year we still had to reject very good applications again simply because there were no slots left for them. The decisions have been tough but we hope to have done the best we can. Now if you are one of the people we unfortunately couldn’t accept into GSoC for KDE we have an offer for you. Like in previous years we are running Season of KDE for you. You will work on your project with a mentor by your side and a timeline to stick to and you will get a certificate and t-shirt plus possibly some Google swag once you have successfully completed your project. We can’t pay you like Google does unfortunately but you’ll have a great experience and learn a lot. We’re aware that you might not be able to work on it full-time like during GSoC so your mentor will work with you to adjust the scope and timeline of the project.
If you are interested in this opportunity please send an email to kde-soc-mentor@kde.org and we’ll work the rest out together.

Wow – I’ll say – that’s quite a line-up! Thankyou Google, students and mentors – there’s some really cool projects listed, there! :)

Wow, we did get a lot didn’t we? I’m happy to see some of my pet projects in there – Marble navigation and Plasma Media Centre – but all round there’s a lot of potential awesomeness :-)

I think from next time it should be called KSOC and not GSOC…
