Thank you for supporting Sugar Labs in 2010. We look forward to accepting your contributions to support the use of technology in education. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is "a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects."1

How to participate

As a student As a mentor By contributing Ideas
The most important job of all! Sugar Labs is looking forward to your contribution. To begin, we strongly recommend orienting yourself with the Sugar Labs codebase. Be sure to visit http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ and look at the bugs triaged "sugar-love" on the main page. These bugs are tasks that are simple enough for people to orient themselves with the code. (Please add your proposal to the wiki on a page called Summer_of_Code/2010/Proposal_name where Proposal_name is the name of your proposal.) You can directly benefit a new software developer's coding competency and confidence levels while contributing to Sugar Labs and developing your own first-line management skills. Here you can easily post/comment/vote your - ideas, and here you can look for more development ideas - projects.
