Summer of Coders at Google: Robert Watson

Robert Watson, organization administrator and mentor for the FreeBSD project, recently visited Google and treated our employees to a talk on "How the FreeBSD Project Works." Robert's talk provided insights into FreeBSD's governance as whole, and his remarks on FreeBSD's processes for onboarding new developers and how their existing structures aided the project's participation in Summer of Code are of particular interest. You can check out the video of Robert's presentation to learn more.

And for those of you who are wondering, you won't necessarily be talked into recording a podcast if you visit Google Mountain View. We might just persuade you to give a talk. Or you can talk us into hosting your talk. Either way works.

Seriously though, when any Summer of Coders are in the Mountain View area, you are most welcome to visit and give a presentation to Googlers about your Summer of Code project or your other open source activities. You know where to find us.
