Summer of Code
Thank you for your interest in Eclipse. Eclipse is a great place to spend time learning, coding, participating and contributing. We are an exciting open source project with a vibrant community, and we look forward to your application and your project ideas.
A good way to meet those involved with the program is to visit the #eclipse-soc and #eclipse IRC channels on Freenode.
The programme is administered by Philippe Ombredanne ( philippe dot ombredanne at eclipse dot org ) and Wayne Beaton (wayne dot beaton at eclipse dot org). More information about the programme can be found here.
Google Summer of Code
This project was inspired by the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) programme and we continue to be involved with that programme. If you are a student, you can apply for funding from Google to work on a summer project. Eclipse has been involved since 2006 and intends to continue its involvement as long as Google supports the programme.
You can find out more about Eclipse involvement with GSoC here.
