University of Moratuwa tops GSOC 2009

University of Moratuwa has been able to top the Google Summer of Code program, yet again. With 22 participating students university of Moratuwa was far ahead from the second place, University of Campinas Brazil which had 12 participating students. I’m glad i was a part of this success. Here are some stats of GSOC 2009.

I am on GitHub

Github is a web based project hosting service based on git that has social networking concepts embedded into it. They call it Social Coding. Apart from standard version control facilities github includes social networking features like RSS feeds and followers. Currently I have the GSOC 2009 project hosted in github and hopefully many more in the future.

You can follow my social codings at http://github.com/kasun.

I am selected for summer of code 2009

I am so happy to announce that I am selected for Google Summer of Code 2009. Over the next 4 months close to 1000 students from over 70 countries would work with close to 150 open source projects to make the world a little better place.

I am selected to work with Maemo and will be using Python. After programming all this time with Java I was planning to move to Python. This will be a great chance for me to learn Python while contributing to an open source project and on the process getting paid by Google.

Thank you very much Google for this wonderful program.
