Hi all,

Student registration for the Google Summer of Code 2008 has just opened. 
All students interested in submitting an application should do so by 
going to http://code.google.com/soc/2008/student_step1.html and 
following the instructions in that page.

The webform has two sections:

- the first is an Abstract, that is a short description of the project 
that you'd like to submit. This will be used in Google's public GSoC 
website; if you need some examples, look at Squeak's project from last 
year: http://code.google.com/soc/2007/squeak/about.html .
- the second version is a Detailed Description. In this section you 
should add a more extensive description of your project, with details on 
the problem that you'd like to solve, technical aspects, an approximate 
schedule/roadmap etc. You should also add a short description of 
yourself and of your Smalltalk skills.

As happened last year, previous Smalltalk knowledge is not needed, 
provided you agree to learn the language and the environment before the 
beginning of the coding phase ;)
