I'm pleased to announce the first selected students for Umit Summer of Code 2011. This year we had several students applying with really good ideas, and even had some of them working on their proposals before the actual beginning of the USoC. Please, join me welcoming our talented USoC 2010 team:
- Gautam Bajaj will be working on an open source mobile application to Android which aims to sniff packets. The main goal is to create an abstraction quite similar of what PacketManipulator does for the Desktop Version.
