To all students,
Honestly, I would like to convince all of you, especially students in Thailand, to participate in Google Summer of Code 2008 which announced officially yesterday. As of now, there is tentative schedule in [FAQ] and it will be kicked off on March 3, 2008, just 5 days from now. If you have any questions right now, please read FAQ and previous programs in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Don't worry if you have zero knowledge about open source or specific projects. You still have a month to learn which project is the best fit for you. The easiest way to find answers to your questions is to enter yourself into open source communities. In case you don't have any projects in mind, just see the previous mentoring organizations list in 2007.
Prepare early for better proposal!
Above is what I really want to express exactly. Today we are in late January. Usually Google Summer of Code starts in the beginning of March. There are a valuable month left for all of us, mentors and students, to prepare themselves for this impressive event. Do you really want to be a part of this program? If your answer is "yes", why not start early? Not tomorrow, I mean today! Right here, right now!
