Dear syslog-ng users,

This year the syslog-ng project participates the Google Summer of Code
again. We are looking for students interested in working on an open source
project – syslog-ng – and participating in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC).

If you are new to GSoC, here are a few words about it (from

"Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student
developers into open source software development. Students work with an
open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their
break from school."

"Students work for an open source software organization, and earn a stipend
for successfully completing the project."

In our view, being part of an open source community is a great learning
experience with exposure to many aspects of software development. During
university and later at the workplace, most people lack this kind of
experience, while many of the open source projects are actually the
cornerstones of IT. A good example is of course Linux, but there are many
more similar projects, such as: Kubernetes, GIMP, Blender, Docker, and the
list could go on.

We think Google Summer of Code – and syslog-ng in particular – is a great
opportunity to start contributing to an open source project, gain
invaluable experience, and get that reference that you can put on your CV.

If you are interested, go to the syslog-ng page of GSoC,

you can find contact information, project ideas, and details about how to

If you are a teacher or you know students for any other reasons, make sure
that your students know about syslog-ng and that they check our project
idea list!

students (and their teachers) as possible!

Thank you for your help,
