RTEMS Selected as Google Code In 2012 Organization

Google has announced the participating organizations for the 2012 edition of Google Code In. This is a program
for high school students and you should pitch this to your local high school.

Only TEN!! organizations were accepted.

  • Apertium
  • BRL-CAD
  • Copyleft Games Group
  • Haiku
  • KDE
  • RTEMS Project
  • Sahana Software Foundation
  • SugarLabs
  • The Fedora Project
  • The NetBSD Project

As this is a great honor, I encourage users to pitch in and help mentor. Mentoring GCI is different from mentoring GSOC students. Each task is smaller and should be something almost ANY member of the RTEMS Community can do in about two hours.

Our goal as a project is to have enough people responding to students that we are ALWAYS available and respond quickly. To achieve this, a mailing list has been set up so each mentor can track every open task. If one needs attention and you are available, respond. Please volunteer to be a mentor in this.

Similarly if you have ideas for appropriate tasks, please help by adding them to

Thanks and let's make this a great program for the students.
