Native Client has received Google Summer of Code funding. From

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We have worked with several open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together nearly 2500 successful student participants and 2500 mentors from 98 countries worldwide, all for the love of code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.

Appropriate project areas for Native Client include:
  • contribute tests and testing infrastructure
  • add a feature, such as SWIG support
  • write a NaCl based application, such as a image editor
For more ideas, see The deadline for your applications is 3 April 2009, so please get your proposals in quickly if you are interested in this program.
