Google Summer Of Code Intern in Openstack

Yay!! Google Summer Of Code Intern In Openstack

The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program, first held from May to August 2005, in which Google awards stipends (of US$5,500, as of 2014) to all students who successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding project during the summer. The event draws its name from the 1967 Summer of Love (of the 1960s counterculture), and the idea for the SoC came directly from Google's founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

For the first time Openstack was selected as mentoring organization in GSOC. Here's the list of students whose proposal got accepted for Openstack.

I am really excited to be a part of such awesome community.
