Details of the Talk

During their studies, all Hungarian BSc students majoring in Computer Science have to spend 6 weeks (240 hours) on a practical training at a company. Hungarian Novell office has been working with students for a while. Since last year the main focus of this internship program has been LibreOffice development. Students have to work on Easy Hacks (code cleaning, refactoring, bugfixing). The goal is to keep them busy for 6 weeks, to make them learn useful things (such as make, git, irc, hacking on a large codebase) and to get good patches from them. Ideally it is a win-win situation. Students get their sign-off that they need and they learn a lot, and LibreOffice is getting better by their work. Some of them may even stay with the project.
