Google Summer of Code is a global program that gives university students a stipend to write code for open source projects over a three month period. Accepted students are paired with a mentor from the participating projects, gaining exposure to real-world software development and the opportunity for future employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.
For jBPM, I've added two ideas to the list, but there is a Wiki page with over 10 possible proposals available here, including:
- jBPM on android
- Integrating jBPM with your own preferred project(s)
- jBPM performance on steroids
- Document management system
- Mobile client(s) for jBPM
- From BPEL to BPMN2
- Social BPM using jBPM
- Implement human tasks as a business process itself
- Process mining for jBPM
- jBPM and Drools for access control
- jBPM and Drools for clinical decision support
The deadline for student applications is April 6th, 19:00 UTC, so if you're interested in participating this year, don't hesitate and be fast !
