Summer of Coders at Google: Fyodor Vaskovich

While you may know him as the developer behind the Nmap Security Scanner, we refer to Fyodor as "the one who took on ten students by himself in Summer of Code 2005 and 2006." For our latest podcast, we had a chance to catch up with Fyodor about life as a third time Summer of Code mentor, as well as some highlights of the accomplishments of Nmap's SoC students, past and present. We also got a chance to hear about some of his work with Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility, a new organization in Summer of Code this year, as well as a bit about the Umit Project, which came about under his tutelage in Summer of Code 2005 & 2006.

Many thanks to Fyodor for joining us!
