Open Source Summer Perl Jobs for College Students

The Perl Foundation is participating in Google Summer of Code 2010 and will begin accepting applications from students on the 29th.

If you are a college student interested in Open Source software, now is the time to get involved.

Each year, Google offers students the opportunity to spend their summer coding on open source projects. You propose a project, and if selected, you're assigned a mentor and provided a $4500 stipend. It is a competitive program to get into, but offers an amazing amount of real-world experience and the ability to get seriously involved in an open source project of your choosing. The Perl Foundation spans a wide variety of projects including Perl 5, Perl 6, and Parrot with many great mentors knowledgeable in areas ranging from language design, virtual machines, and compilers through web and desktop applications. This program is a great chance to get more involved in the Perl community and put a substantial project worth of source code in your portfolio.

Applications are due April 9th.
