Code for Freedom

Sun Microsystems, India launched the “Code for Freedom” contest for University students in India.

Here is what the website has to say,

Sixty years ago, just as India awoke to freedom, we call upon the young minds of India to awake to the clarion call of Open Source. The Open Source movement is emerging as the new new world order making a sweeping impact in the technology sector across the world. Today, Open Source products such as Apache Web Server, Open Office and Linux have dwarfed several proprietary software corporations.

Sun Microsystems, a front-runner in professionally backing Open Source and one of the largest contributors to this movement, takes this opportunity to invite the young, dynamic academic community of India to come and become a part of the exciting Open Source wave. We encourage you all to embrace the Open Source technologies with open hands and help take these communities to greater heights.

With this vision, Sun Microsystems is happy to announce the Code For Freedom contest where students across India contribute to the technologies that are empowering the participation age. Participating in this contest will provide you with precious industry experience while still learning in college. And there is more. We in turn reward you for your valuable contribution in taking the first steps towards the open source movement.

Come. Be a part of this phenomenon called, Open Source.
