This is the BeagleBoard specific page for Google Summer of Code. BeagleBoard.org has been accepted as a mentoring organization for 2014 and is recruiting mentors and students.

Prospective mentors are requested to assist with the ideas page, add themselves to the list, join the mailing list and create a connection to BeagleBoard.org on Melange.

Students are requested to engage possible mentors and may begin submitting applications for BeagleBoard related projects starting on March 10. We had great success with our projects in 2010 and 2013, and we want 2014 to be even stronger.
