The 2011 ESA Summer of Code In Space (SOCIS) starts! Mentoring organization (i.e. open source space-related projects) can apply before 15/07/2011. Modelled after the Google Summer of Code, SOCIS is an European Space Agency pilot project offering students the opportunity to be paid to develop, during the summer, open source code for space related open source projects.
An acquaintance of mine is looking for someone to tutor/guide/mentor him on the subject of threading. He seems like he's got a fairly introductory knowledge of the subject, so he's looking for a "guru". (If you've taken CS at WSU and covered the subject in much depth, you probably qualify.)
He's willing to pay for your time, though you'll have to establish the terms of the contract with him directly.
He's most comfortable with Java, but other languages may be suitable.
Contact me as 'samba' in #wsulug on Freenode, or as 'optikknight' via AIM.
