Summer of Code Projects Announced!

Google has announced the projects accepted for Summer for Code 2010! Congratulations to the students who were accepted to work with the Mono Project.

If you weren't accepted, we still would like you to join our community. We had many good applications and a limited number of slots, and unfortunately had to make some hard decisions.

This year, we have the following projects, students and mentors:

If you're a student looking for ideas, take a look at the Project Ideas list (though you're welcome to come up with ideas of your own).

Please also read the application template before applying.
