GSoC 2013 has been announced for this year. This gives an opportunity for students accross the globe to associate themselves with an open source organization and work on cool stuff in the summer. I had an opportunity to participate in last year’s programme, and had an awesome experience. This year, it will not be possible for me to participate, but I am trying to get involved by working with the openSUSE project, trying to get ideas, projects, mentors and most importantly…Students.

The openSUSE project has been a regular participant in the programme and has beniffited a lot from it. This year also, it aims to participate. As of now, me, Manu Gupta and Matt Barringer are working on preparing the ideas page, and finding mentors for the projects. If you have an awesome idea that could really benefit the openSUSE project, please add it to the ideas page.
If you are willing to mentor for a project, please let us know

If you are a student who is willing to participate with openSUSE, then keep a watch on the ideas page, and activity on the Mailing Lists, IRC channels. Feel free to contact us for any questions. We would be happy to help.
