Measurement Lab and Google Summer of Code 2012

I rarely post directly about my day job but wanted to reach out that firmly on my head for a second since I know there are a fair number of hackers in amongst my readers, several of whom I have heard from are also students.

The main project on which I work, Measurement Lab, has been accepted as a mentoring organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code. We are acting as an umbrella for one sub-project of our own and two other fantastic, network measurement related ones (DONAR and Paris Traceroute.)

Please take a moment to look over our ideas page and either consider submitting a proposal or sharing with any students you may know who might be interested.
