It may only be March, but the heat is on — Google Summer of Code is back for 2008! Last year, nearly 900 students teamed up with over 2,000 mentors to write millions of lines of code. We're looking forward to another year of introducing university students to open source development and helping our colleagues in the open source world find new contributors and get more code written.

We're taking applications from open source projects who'd like to mentor students today through March 13th. For full details, see the program site.

We'd love to hear from you, so join us in #gsoc on Freenode or join the program discussion list.
