The student application deadline for Google Summer of Code 2012 is coming up this Friday (April 6th). GSoC is a program where Google pays students to work on open-source code over the summer, and I would very much like to see some work done for IronPython. If you're a student, you're interested in
IronPython, and you want to get paid to work on it, this is yourchance. Check out the ideas page, which also directs you where to apply.
A huge thank-you to the Mono project for allowing us to use their slots if we get some good applications.
