Sun, 13/03/2016 - 16:00

For the tenth time running, Debian has been selected as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code (Debian-specific program page), an internship program open to university students aged 18 and up.

Our team of amazing mentors has cooked up an exciting list of projects this year, and we would be glad to have you on board with Debian for one of those summer internships. The student application period will open on March 14 (and close on March 25), but feel free to subscribe to our mailing list and get in touch with our mentors. You can also catch us on our IRC channel #debian-soc.

Debian Bits: Debian is looking for three interns in the Outreachy Program

Sat, 12/03/2016 - 20:10

As part of its diversity outreach initiatives, Debian will be participating in the upcoming 12th round (May - August 2016) of Outreachy, an internship program open worldwide to women (cis and trans), trans men and genderqueer people, as well as nationals and residents of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, and specifically of our sponsor Intel who has given us funds specifically for one intern, Debian will be able to welcome three interns this round.

Applications for the program are open until March 22nd, so don't wait up! Debian has a lot of interesting internship opportunities this year. More info about the program is available on the Debian specific program page, as well as on the official website. Feel free to contact the outreach team and mentors on our mailing list or IRC channel #debian-soc in irc.oftc.net

If you want Debian to keep participating in such programs, and expand its outreach efforts, you can donate to one of the organizations supporting the Debian project, or volunteer some time by participating in discussions on our mailing list.
