SummerTalk 2007 Call for Projects

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

ESUG is proud to announce the Summertalk 2007 Call for Projects.

This program is here to help students work on open-source Smalltalk projects. The European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) will fund students during the summer.

Each student (in sync with his supporting organization and project leader) will receive 1500 euros. Each student will work under the guidance of a mentor accredited by ESUG. The money will be distributed in 3 steps: start, middle and end of the project.

The selection process done by ESUG will take into account whether the student will be supervised, if there is an infrastructure to help him as well as a the relevance of the topic for the community and the trust in the mentor.

The code developed during this program has to be released under the MIT Licence.
