The Perl Foundation (TPF) is once again taking part in Google’s Summer of Code. This is a great program but I always think that the timescales are quite tight. Student applications need to be submitted by the 8th April which only gives the accepted organizations 3 weeks to find their students. This year Florian Ragwitz is running the program for The Perl Foundation and Jonathan Leto is running the program for the Parrot Foundation. Mark Keating has been working hard promoting this project and I’m hoping that we manage to at least match the number of students we had last year.
