A Spring announcement: ownCloud will take part in Google Summer of Code 2013 under the organization openSUSE. You can find the list of ideas here: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:GSOC_ideas#ownCloud
We are very grateful to openSUSE for hosting us this year and to KDE for helping ownCloud with GSoC in the last years (including my own project!). Maybe next year we will try to participate as an independent organization.
In fact, even this year KDE offers an ownCloud-related project, proposed by the Marble guys: http://community.kde.org/GSoC/2013/Ideas#Project:_Marble_meets_owncloud
If you are a student interested in GSoC, I encourage you to contact the ownCloud mailing list. And rather than giving you specific advices, I refer you to these two very well-written blog posts by KDE fellows Teo Mrnjavac and Myriam Schweingruber, respectively:
- How to write a kick-ass proposal for Google Summer of Code
- So you want to be a “Summer of Code” student…
Summer is coming!
