Three computer science BSc students from Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest) have started internship at Novell Professional Services Hungary (NPSH), and more students are expected to come. During the 6 weeks period of internship their work is to get involved in LibreOffice development. NPSH officially announced this opportunity on the university’s home page (in Hungarian).
I am mentoring these students which means I help them to get started (download the source, setup the build environment, build the source, and solve an easy hack). Later they are encouraged to start with a more complex problem, with the help of the whole LibreOffice developer community. I hope that this internship program will be successful and some students will stay with LibreOffice project for a longer period.
