Award ceremony at FOSSSL
FOSSCode 2006, is a program that encourages students to work on free and open source software projects. Modeled on the popular Google Summer of Code program, computer science students of universities and schools island wide will be given the opportunity to be innovative and also earn some money for their efforts. Our objective is to encourage students to get into the wonderful world of “Free and Open Source Software” also known as FOSS, and realize the value and benefits that FOSS can bring to developers as well as the country.
Who said there’s no money in Open Source?
We are offering up to 6 students with the best proposals, Rs. 50,000 each if they succeed in completing their projects in the given time.
