Hi All,

There will be an introductory session on Google Summer of Code program, conducted by
the past years' participants from Sri Lanka.

Assuming Google will conduct the program for the year 2011, we would like to encourage
many new participants from Sri Lanka this time again to be top of the world producing
the most number of successful participants for the year 2011. We are planning to give
an introduction to the program, the applying procedure,
benefits, sharing past experiences, introduction to useful
FOSS tools to get things started and finally a Q&A session.
Session will be conducted in English, Sinhala & Tamil
appropriately.

Date      : Monday, 17th of January 2011
Time      : 9am - 12 noon
Venue     : SET, Faculty of Science,
            University of Peradeniya


                        “Google will provide a stipend of 5000
                        USD per accepted student developer. After your proposal gets accepted,
                        you will receive 500 USD. After passing mid-term evaluations you
                        will be awarded with 2250 USD and if you successfully finished your
                        project you will be awarded the remaining. Further, you will receive a
                        T-Shirt from Google and a valuable certificate along with the pleasure
                        of contributing to FOSS projects which values more than the prize
                        money! :)”



So if you are new to GSoC, worrying about all the procedures, terminologies, but
enthusiastic to learn what is it all about, and make your mark in the world of open
source, or simply earn some bucks for the summer, do not miss this rare chance !

If you are an undergraduate/postgraduate university student please circulate this
among your batch-mates.
