GNOME Internships projects and interns has been elected!
We had have strong applicants and quite a big amount of applications. If you are not the elected don’t be discouraged, it wasn’t an easy choice.
This round we have to congratulate Ludovico de Nittis who will work in the “USB Protection” project with his mentor Tobias Mueller. Congrats Ludovico!
The project goal is to increase the robustness against attacks via malicious USB devices. Certainly a challenging goal! You can read extensive information in the project wiki linked above, it’s definitely quite interesting.
This round of internships is fund by the privacy and security campaign we did at GNOME a few years ago, and we are happy we can put them into good use to improve the security and privacy of GNOME users and donors.
Deeply thanks to all the donors! Withouth you this initiative wouldn’t have been possible. Also thanks to the mentors and applicants.
More on the admin side, it has been a little bumpy since its the first time doing these internships. And well, this last week I have been a bit worried by other stuff you already probably know about :)
