Presentation:

  Google Summer of Code

  Presented by:
    Leslie Hawthorn, Open Source Program Manager, Google, Inc.

  The Google Summer of Code is an annual program designed to introduce
  students to the world of open source software development.
  Google awards stipends to students who successfully complete a
  free software / open-source coding project during the summer.
  The program invites students who meet their eligibility criteria to
  post applications that detail the project they wish to perform.
  These applications are then evaluated by the corresponding mentoring
  organization.  Every participating organization must provide mentors
  for each of the project ideas received, if the organization is of the
  opinion that the project would benefit them.  The mentors then rank the
  applications and submit the ranked list to Google.

About the Speaker:

  Leslie Hawthorn held various roles at Google prior to joining the
  Open Source Programs Office in March 2006.  She manages the Google
  Summer of Code program and the Open Source Developers at Google
  Speaker Series.  She also facilitates open source community meetings
  and hackathons at Google's Mountain View, California, USA
  headquarters.  Proud to be known as Google's geek herder, Leslie holds
  a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of
  California at Berkeley.
