Internship at Novell Hungary

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.
