 [[http://​code.google.com/​soc/​|Google'​s Summer of Code]] program provides funding for students who'd like to contribute to open source projects. It's a great opportunity to get involved in open source software, gain valuable new experience and meet interesting people. Mixxx is a good project to work on because it gives you experience working with cross-platform development as well as writing code that's going to power live performances (ie. stability is key). Mixxx also relies heavily on multithreading,​ which offers students an opportunity to learn about threading and work with it in a real-world application. Also the interesting people you'll meet will be us. And we're nice (honest). [[http://​code.google.com/​soc/​|Google'​s Summer of Code]] program provides funding for students who'd like to contribute to open source projects.

 Of course, you might have an even cooler idea. Perhaps you played with Mixxx for the first time and thought, "Damn these guys are really missing X with bells on!". Whatever your ideas are, no matter how wierd and wonderful, we'd like to hear them. So go ahead and apply. Of course, you might have an even cooler idea.
