Ruby Summer of Code 2010

Continuing in Google’s great tradition of encouraging student open source development, Ruby Central, Engine Yard, and the Rails core team are teaming up to present the first annual Ruby Summer of Code.

Head over to to get started and follow @rubysoc for news.

The summer will follow Google’s example closely:

  • students are paid a $5000 stipend to work full-time during their summer break
  • a group of Ruby gurus volunteer their time as mentors
  • mentors vote on student proposals based on usefulness, benefit to the Ruby community, and history of motivated open source contribution

The more we raise, the more students we can fund. Donate now!
