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.

Student: Nikhil Sarda

Additional C# Refactoring …
