Hi, let’s talk about GSOC.
As you may know (but you may not) last year I tried to join the Google Summer of Code (aka GSOC) as student, without luck.
GSOC should be a program about learning, but it looks like over skilled people with many years of professional work have more chances.
But I’m not here for this. I just hope this year it’s going better.
I’ve been reading about GSOC for quite long this year, and I discovered that there is OwnCloud in the organizations list, and I was excited for this!
You do not know what OwnCloud is? Well… go and study! OwnCloud is great, I have been using it for long since I discovered it and now all my family loves it!
Owncloud (owncloud.org) is a self-hosted cloud storage (and much more…). Just imagine it as your own Dropbox!
We also often suggest it in the RaspberryItaly community (if you do not know, I am an admin of the italian Raspberry Pi community!).
But let’s talk about the GSOC.
Actually, I found many interesting projects in the OwnCloud page and I’m currently studying to choose which I’d love to join most, even though I think I will submit a proposal to more than one!
Well, about the Open Source there’s not much to say. I can just say I love the Open Source community software. It’s just something that goes above profit and tries to make the world a better place.
I’m very excited about this and I hope this year I will have more chances than last time.
As I said, during these days I have been reading about Owncloud projects, and next days I will write about which project(s) I will decide to apply to!
