Funf accepted to Google Summer of Code!

We're very happy to update that Funf was accepted into the 2013 Google Summer of Code!

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. Google's team works with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period ($5000 US per project). 

Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. There's also potential for the student to continue working on the project towards academic theses and class projects.

Our official GSoC information is here, where you can also find the list of our proposed project ideas. However, we hope and expect that applicants elaborate on these ideas and also propose their own. In the next few days we'll be updating the instructions for submitting applications.

Applications are accepted between April 22 to May 3rd. From now until April 22nd we'll be happy to discuss proposal ideas with potential applicants. For more information and eligibility, check out the FaQ and other information on the GSoC site.

Also, if you have developed with Funf and would like to be a mentor for a student project, you can apply to be a student mentor before April 22nd.
