Yep, the title says it all. Today I have received my shiny new VISA from Citibank with the initial $505 loaded on it. The other kewl stuff in the envelope included a neat, Google-branded, moleskin and two GSoC 2009 stickers. One’s going on my laptop, if I can gut it!
Well, I’ll leave you with some photos now!
Waaaaaaait for it, waaaaait for it……. YES PEOPLE! I was accepted for Google Summer of Code 2009
This will be my smallest post ever but that is all I have to say I am friggin’ ecstatic!
I know this post comes a little late and all but I still had to mention it on my blog. It turns out I am repeating the stunt again. After being turned down by Google last year, I decided I would try to apply once more this year.
Since last year I still had the change to get acquainted and get the logic of Apache Derby, I thought it would be wise to apply for the same project, and so I did. After all I do have an education on database management and also on Java, which are key for a project like Apache Derby. On top of it all there’s also my tutor from last year; despite not having been chosen I still had a tutor who helped me all the way through. Kathey Marsden agreed to be my tutor again this year and that is a plus for me because I know upfront what I can expect.
So, the application period is over and my application is submitted. The results should be out on April 20th and I have my fingers crossed for me to get picked
