Since my last post about the Google Summer Of Code 2012 Student Applications deadline closing and sharing some initial student applications statistics, all the GSoC 2012 mentoring organisations have been hard at work reviewing and scoring their student applications.
After a slower than usual start, this years Google Summer of Code (GSoC) student applications period closed at 19:00 UTC on Friday April 6th, with a major application rush in the last couple of days which kept us busy right up to the deadline! Many thanks to all the interested students who applied, and our mentors and org admins for taking the time to respond to students on IRC, email and through Melange.
If you are a student interested in applying to the Honeynet Project, the student application deadline is 19:00 UTC on Friday April 6th. So with 3 days to go, you need to be planning on submitting your project application vi the Melange system soon. To avoid disappointment, please don't leave your application until the last minute - you can edit as often as you want before the deadline.
With GSoC 2011 student applications having been open for the past week, we've been having a number of interesting discussions with potential students on both #gsoc2011-honeynet on irc.freenode.net and on our public GSoC mailing list and this summer is already looking to have many exciting project ideas.
Our annual workshop in Paris got off to the perfect start this weekend when Google went live with the new look GSoC 2011 Melange site and announced which lucky organizations had been accepted as mentoring orgs for GSoC 2011.
Has it really been another year already? Having really enjoyed our experience as a successful mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2009 and Google Summer of Code 2010, The Honeynet Project is very pleased to announce that we will once again be applying to be accepted this year as a potential mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011 (note the changed URL for GSoC 2011).
After a few slow days for student applicants everywhere, and some difficult decisions on the final slot allocations for our mentors, the long wait is finally over and the GSoC 2010 official student selections are public. The Honeynet Project are very excited to have received 17 GSoC slots this year (up from 9 last year), so many thanks to Google for their fantastic support again this year.
Student applications for Google Summer of Code 2010 closed at 19:00 UTC tonight, with the usual last minute rush of submissions (but thankfully no timezone confusion this time). We had thought that receiving three student applications in the final minute, including one with 8.4 seconds to spare was cutting it close, but Plan9 apparently had one lucky applicant with 1.23 seconds remaining on the clock! That must set a new GSoC record... ;-)
On March 29th Google officially began accepting applications from students for Google Summer of Code 2010, which the Honeynet Project is very exicted to be participating in again this year as a mentoring organisation. We've recently updated our project ideas page and mentor information and students have until 19:00 UTC on Friday April 9th to apply (you can either chose one of our ideas or propose your own).
