The Google Technology Apprentice Program (GTAP) is a new initiative of the Silicon Valley GTUG for the summer and fall of 2009. GTAP is inspired by the Google Summer Of Code (GSoC) initiative organized each year by Google. GTAP activities will parallel the GSoC timeline.
The basic premise is simple. College Students in the San Francisco Bay Area are invited to participate as "apprentices" in GTAP this summer. We will do our best to find mentors for participating students from the software professionals belonging to Silicon Valley GTUG. Regardless of whether a mentor is assigned, participating students can submit a lightning talk proposal in September for consideration. Our Silicon Valley GTUG meeting in October will consist solely of student lightning talks about their summer projects. We may not have time to showcase every GTAP project at our October meeting. However, we will do something to acknowledge all the participating apprentices and their mentors at the October meeting.
The only requirement of participating students is that they make the resulting code freely available to all as a project on code.google.com or in a comparable online open source project repository. For participating mentors, we do ask that they meet in person with their apprentice at least once a month over the summer. In addition, they should have at least weekly communication with their apprentice. Of course, more frequent interaction between mentors and apprentices would be even better.
If you are a student that would like to participate as an apprentice, please list your meetup member name and a summary of the Google Technologies you plan to use in your summer project:
