If you are not familiar with the concept, in a Summer of Code students and mentors work together on projects for which the students get paid from a fund while their results go back to the community via open source. The Rails project has officially participated in Google Summers of Code since 2009, with some quite familiar names and pieces of software coming out of it.
Rails Girls, the organization that brings more women into tech by organizing free, volunteer-driven workshops all around the world, now set to run their own flavour of this model and are funding the student sponsorships via a community donation campaign.
The campaign is due to end on June 7th - please consider donating a bit for this very well worthy cause - the more money is donated, the more students can be accepted and projects will be launched!
