MusicBrainz has applied to be a mentoring organization for Google’s Summer of Code project. Google will actually pay students to spend their summer hacking on open source projects and I’m hoping that some students who are excited by MusicBrainz will apply to this project and spend their summer improving MusicBrainz.
If you’re a student and are interested in this, check out the link above and read up on the project. Then take a look at SummerOfCodeIdeas for some of the projects that I think could be done in the scope of Summer of Code.
They will begin taking student applications starting today and the window to apply isn’t terribly large, I think. So, if you’re interested, don’t dawdle and get your application in ASAP.
Post questions in the comments if you have them!
