    Google Sponsors NMAP in Coding Project

    If you are a student and you are looking for an excellent opportunity, take a look at the following (mailed yesterday from Fyodor):

    Yesterday, Google announced their first Summer of Code program. This innovative and generous program provides $4,500 stipends to each of 200 university students to create or enhance open source software during their summer break. I am pleased to announce that Nmap is one of 40 open source projects that Google selected for this program. We would be pleased to work with one or more students to extend the power of Nmap. You get paid, gain valuable experience and a great resume booster, while the Nmap project and users benefit from your valuable contributions.

    You have until June 14 to apply if you are interested, though your chances may be better if you apply sooner. If you do fill out the application, please also send me the project description and a brief bio describing how your experience fits the project. Also let me know what school you attend. I have written up some project ideas, though you are free to submit whatever cool idea your heart desires.

    Here are the relevant URLs:

    Hey Hey,

    I got this in this morning... It's pretty amazing stuff... However beyond NMap the entire list of organizations you can work with is pretty amazing.. There's quite a few that I'd love to be a part of...

    You don't have to be a student to contribute to open source or any of these projects. Nessus, NMAP and many other open source projects welcome input from anyone who is willing to work on the project. Well, unless you are a dumb@ss like Skiddie...

    Would it be possible to create a webap that uses kpilot and allows syncing over the internet? That would be so dope. If it's possible then I wanna make it.
