Summer of Code
Google run a program through the summer called: “Summer of Code”
Basically you get paid to write code for an open source project. I plan to apply to code for Drupal, my favourite CMS, more specifically to add a ‘drawing API’.
This morning I got an email about my first patch going into a contributed project, how ace is that. It’s a really good feeling giving something back.
I use Drupal to run the maths society website, but I really enjoy developing for it. I can be really creative, I just need to work out how I can make a career out of it.
