Hey Everyone,

(x-posted all over the place, feel free to forward to anyone who might be interested)

Facebook Open Academy (FOA) is about to start up again for the fall. For those unfamiliar, here's a synopsis:

FOA is a program that matches top students with open source projects. Students work roughly 8 to 10 hours per week to complete features, fix bugs, and generally participate in the project's community. Typically they do so working in groups of 4 or more.

Mentors are expected to invest a few hours per week to mentor. The program also includes a face to face code sprint running for 3 days. We anticipate multiple code sprint locations this fall including ones in North America & Europe. (Facebook generously reimburses mentors for travel costs)

For what it's worth, I highly recommend the program.

I will be following up soon with a link to the form to apply. If you are interested, please plan to complete the form, but also give me a heads up so I can advocate for you. Competition is fierce!

Cheers!

Andrew
