Attention students, time is running out:
If you are a student and interested in Open Source, now is the time to
act to get involved in Google's wonderful Summer of Code program.

Each year, Google offers students the opportunity to spend their summer
vacation coding rather than flipping burgers. You propose a project,
and if selected, you're assigned a mentor and provided with a stipend.
It is a competitive program to get into, but offers an amazing amount
of real-world experience and the ability to get seriously involved in
an open source project of your choosing. The Perl Foundation spans a
wide variety of projects including Perl 5, Perl 6, and Parrot with many
great mentors signed-up to help you succeed.
And the deadline is fast approaching (noon (PDT) on Friday!)
