Get Ready for Summer of Code 2013!


The Mono team is happy to announce that we are participating in the Google Summer of Code 2013. Last year was a great success and we hope this year will be even better!

The student application period runs from April 22nd until May 3rd but don't delay - you can get started preparing your proposals right away. Now is the time to get a head start on introducing yourself and getting to know the community. Come discuss your ideas with us and do the research to make sure you have a really great proposal. You can even fix bugs and file some patches to demonstrate your skills. Show us how excited you are about coding the summer away!

As usual, project ideas and rules are available on our GSoC page. The ideas list has been updated recently, so don't be surprised if some things have moved around or disappeared. Feel free to choose one or more ideas from that page, or tell us about your own awesome idea.

Our mailing lists should be your first stop. Mono devs can generally be found in the mono or mono-devel mailing lists. There's also the monodevelop-devel mailing list for MonoDevelop / Xamarin Studio development. There are many more lists - you can find a full breakdown of all the Mono mailing lists here. For external projects, you should also contact the developers in their project mailing lists.

And, of course, IRC is where everyone is, in the irc.gnome.org server. There's the #mono channel, for general Mono discussions, #monodev for Mono development, #monodevelop for, well, MonoDevelop, and #monosoc for GSoC-specific questions and saying hi to your fellow students.

If you're interested in mentoring, send an email to the Mono GSoC administrator at soc@xamarin.com.

To stay up to date with the applications process, and the work of our students, follow us on Twitter and Google+.

Good luck!
