Student applications are now open for the Mono Project in the 2013 Google Summer of Code!
If you're a student, this is the perfect chance to spend the summer with a great community working on cutting edge open-source C# tools and frameworks. You can hone your development skills on large and complex codebases with great mentors, and get paid $5,000 for your hard work too.
If you're looking for ideas for projects, check out our ideas page. In past years students have worked on diverse and exciting projects such as source analysis, Razor code completion, and precise stack scanning for Mono's garbage collector. You can make multiple applications for different ideas - if you have great project idea that's not in our ideas list, submit it anyway!
We strongly recommend that you submit your application early. The deadline is May 03 at 19:00 UTC and late applications cannot be accepted for any reason. You can update your application and answer our questions after you submit it, so don't delay.
Our Mono Summer of Code 2013 announcement post and our rules page have some advice on getting involved in our community and putting together a good proposal. Remember in your proposal to show us how passionate you are about building great tools and frameworks, and demonstrate that you're able to research and develop things independently but also know when to ask questions.
If you have any questions about the Mono Project in Google Summer of Code that are not answered by our GSoC page or in the #monosoc IRC or mono mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
