The FreeBSD Project gears up for another Google Summer of Code, an annual global program designed to bring students around the world to develop for open-source projects. Prominent FreeBSD developers are mentoring students to develop for NetFPGA, Network Configuration Libraries, eBPF XDP Hooks, audit(4) Kernel Dump Regression Testing, and Capsicumization of the base system. Check out the GSoC page to learn more about the development projects taking place from across the open-source landscape.

Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on introducing students to open source software development. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together 15,000+ student participants and 12,000 mentors from over 118 countries worldwide.

This year, Google has funded 1197 student projects (listed below) for 199 open source organizations who benefit from active involvement from new developers.
