Google Summer of Code 2006
A word from Google: Summer of Code 2006 is a program that offers student developers stipends to create new open source programs or to help currently established projects. Google will be working with a variety of open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several hundred projects over a three-month period. The inaugural instance of the program, which took place last summer, brought together 400 students and 40 mentoring organizations from 49 countries. We'd like to include even more organizations and participants this year.
The Kexi Project (as one of many KDE subprojects) has been accepted by Google as Open Source project within KOffice Project, which in turn, is represented by non-profit organization KDE e.V..
