Moodle has once more been accepted as a viable project for the annual Google Summer of Code and the solicitation for mentors and students is now open (until May 3rd).
If you’re interested in helping a student learn the ins and outs of Moodle development, or you’re a student seeking to work on an open source PHP project that helps students and educators world wide and you’re interested in getting paid to do so (stipends are posted at $5000 per student) this is a great chance to contribute to the open source community (as a bonus, mentor organizations like Moodle HQ will get $500 per student who successfully complete their projects).
