Warren, Drupal... and training

Warren Noronha, a geek (no relation), whom I met in Belgaum years ago and subsequently learnt was in Silicon Valley, recently wrote in about a Drupal Internship for India.

His note says:

OPENQUOTE

With 75,000+ Drupal power websites and an emerging industry supporting over 150 professionals, the open-source [read: free software] Drupal project and community is exploding. At the heart of this community is an incredibly active and productive group of contributors. Creating contributed modules, themes, bug fixes, and core enhancement, these individuals define the course of the Drupal project and the ecosystem of users, tinkerers, and professionals around it. The type of candidate we are looking for: * Doesn't have to have a formal higher education in computer engineering * Doesn't have to be pursuing personal projects relevant to Drupal * Doesn't have to have job experience * Has to be a self starter * Has to be genuinely curious and interested in developing software * Has to have web application development experience * Has to be social and willing to provide support to others. Through this internship program we will attempt to train students from India the ins and outs of Drupal and help them established themselves as long term contributors to the Drupal project. Over two months the selected students will work closely with project mentors on real world Drupal projects; contributed modules, and core patches. They will learn the Drupal development process and gain extremely valuable experience interacting with a live open-source project. Students will be paid a stipend of 4,600 INR to 8,000 INR a month depending on the level of their contributions to the Drupal project. More Information: http://drupal.in/training CLOSEQUOTE

Very interesting! Learn skills and get paid for it, eh! And above all, contribute to a socially-useful project. FN
