Sun Sponsors open source contests in India and Scotland

Sun is sponsoring two free and open source software contests that coincidently were both announced last week: the Code for Freedom contest in India and the Scottish Open Source Awards

Code for Freedom is open to undergraduate and graduate students and is in commemoration of India's 60 years of independence.  The contest, which runs until January of 2008, invites participants to contribute to one of the following five projects: Open Solaris, Project GlassFish, NetBeans, Apache Derby and Open Portal.  For contest details click here.

And then up north, "the Scottish Open Source Awards is part of a strategy to promote the use of Open Source in Scotland and to reward those companies delivering Open Source excellence."  The closing date for entries is September 28 and presentations will take in November (exact date to be announced).

Pau for now...
