Spreading the Summer Love

Thursday, March 20, 2008

Google Summer of Code™ is in full swing, and the outpouring of community support has been phenomenal. Less than two weeks after announcing the program for 2008, our program information flyer was translated into over 35 languages, from Croatian to Kinyarwanda. We've also heard from several students and mentors that they're working on spreading the summer love to their local communities. Here are a few highlights:

Numerous other students have written to let us know that they've blogged about the program, encouraged their friends to apply and given talks at their universities and local user groups.

Many thanks to all of you for your efforts to help us grow the Summer of Code community. If you're out and about evangelizing the program, we'd love to hear from you; post a comment and let us know what you've been doing.
