The Google Summer of Code 2010 is on and once again, Eclipse has been accepted as a mentoring organization. If you want to contribute to Eclipse, build a great project, and get more involved with the Eclipse community - all as a summer job paid by Google - then check out the ideas page and apply.

I was a SOC student at Eclipse last year and it has been an awesome experience! After completing my project, I wanted to create and spread some SOC swag and had stickers printed from the official Eclipse SOC logo. Since it was the first time I did this, after sending multiple different sizes of the logo, the sticker shop gave up on me and just sent me the double amount I had ordered, but uncut.

Hand-cut Eclipse Summer of Code stickers

So even after flooding both Ian Bull (my SOC mentor) and Gen Nishimura (the original logo creator) with real-world postal sticker spam, I still have plenty left! So if you'd like your own Eclipse Summer of Code stickers, hand-cut by a genuine Eclipse SOC student, just mail me your address, and I'll be happy to ship you some.The Google Summer of Code 2010 is on and once again, Eclipse has been accepted as a mentoring organization.
