Google Summer of Code 2011

Since last Monday the student application period for the Google Summer of Code 2011 has opened. A chance for any student to get their hands dirty on their favorite OpenSource project and getting its development process and code base to know better during these 2 months - while getting payed for it! And guess what? This year, you can play with Batman - ehh, B.A.T.M.A.N. Anyways, they both want to save the world of course ;).

As the application of OpenMesh as a mentoring organization was sadly rejected last year, we decided and agreed on applying via Freifunk this year, which serves as an umbrella organization for various projects dealing with wireless mesh networks.

If you are interested in mesh networking and B.A.T.M.A.N. and if you also love OpenSource software and would like to become a more firm part of it, then get in touch with us via mailinglist and/or IRC. So far the following ideas have been collected which you may apply for:

But feel free to tell us your own suggestions and ideas, too.
