Re: [UMN_MAPSERVER-USERS] FYI: Google to pay student open source developers (Summer of Code)
I'm cross posting this because it is an excellent opportunity for students.
I was a paid intern (studying pterodactyls), and my company employs paid
interns to perform well bounded summer projects. The intern gains
invaluable industry experience and a semester's worth of tuition (or beer).
One more reason Google rocks: Applying a proven industry technique in a
new and benevolent way for OSS.

developers (Summer of Code)
Google has announced (May 31) that it will provide a $4500 stipend to
student developers (& $500 to the mentoring organization) that complete
work on open source projects over the summer. Perhaps MapServer would want
to be a “mentoring organization”?
