| It's Summer! No it's not (but hey we can dream..) -- It is time though for 
| another round of Google's Summer of Code (SoC). The SoC is an effort that 
| first started in 2005 as an effort to get students involved in open source 
| code development.  Google provides a stipend to the student and to the 
| mentoring organization that helps the student.

| Google's Summer of Code (SoC) Program has united students interested in open
| source with projects and mentors for several years now. The intiative's goal
| is to foster interest in open source software while exposing students
| to "real-world" software development processes. It's easy to see, based on
| how enthusiastically some projects embrace the annual event, that the
| students aren't the only ones who benefit from the program.
