This summer the KDE project will once again participate in Google Summer of Code! Summer of Code will allow KDE to grow and bring in new developers to the community.
KDE will begin accepting student applications on March 29th, and interested students should check out the KDE Community wiki for a list of potential ideas. Of course, individual ideas not on that page are encouraged as well, so submitting a proposal based on a new KDE application or feature is great as well.
For a list of success stories from the 2009 edition of the program (including pretty screenshots!), see our GSoC 2009 wrap-up.
Any questions about the program should be directed to kde-soc-mentor-at-kde.org, and students looking for mentors or wanting feedback on their ideas or proposals should contact the developer mailing list, kde-devel-at-kde.org.
Mentors must sign up on the Appspot page, and students will be able to start applying there on March 29th. A full timeline is available as well. All participants (students and mentors alike) are encouraged to join #kde-soc on Freenode.
Good luck to prospective students!
