This is a reminder that the Google Summer of Code 2006 has now
officially opened up and students' applications are accepted. The
NetBSD Project is proud to be a participating mentoring organization
once again and has compiled a list of possible projects at
http://www.NetBSD.org/contrib/projects.html. This website has been
updated frequently in the last couple of days, but it remains
If you are interested in applying for one of these projects -- or if you
have an idea for another project altogether -- please take your time to
discuss your idea with the NetBSD community on the relevant mailing
list. Remember, applications are *not* accepted on a first-come,
first-serve basis, so the more feedback you get on your project
proposal, the better your application will be, increasing your chances
of being accepted!
When you do prepare your application, please take a look at
http://www.NetBSD.org/contrib/soc-application.html, where we have listed
a few of the questions you should be able to answer in your application.
Some example applications that were accepted during the 2005 SoC (from
all kinds of projects) are available at
proposals for NetBSD's accepted projects from last year are available
When you have finalized your application, please submit it via the
Google web frontend at http://code.google.com/soc/student.html. It will
then automatically be made available to the NetBSD mentors for review.
Good luck with your application!
Multiarchitecture OS, no hype required.
