Last April 8, we did an amazing meetup at Faculdades Integradas de Taquara - FACCAT (Taquara, Brasil), to talk about the Google Summer of Code (GSoC). I participated twice on GSoC, working for The PostgreSQL Global Development Group on phpPgAdmin project. You are welcome to read the last posts on this blog that talk about what I did, with help of my mentors Jehan-Guillaume de Rorthais and Andreas Scherbaum.
More than 70 students were there. We discuss what is the program, how it works, why and how to participate! I feel that a lot of students of my region are now very interested to write a proposal this year. Would be very nice more students from here coding on GSoC during the brazilian winter :-)
I would like to thank FACCAT for host the meetup. Other pictures about the meetup can be found here.
Stay tuned, the student application period opens at April 22. More details at Google Summer of Code Home Page
