The Facebook Open Academy program is a partnership between a handful of 
universities, Facebook, and open-source projects such as OpenStack, Socket.io, 
MondoDB, and Mozilla Firefox O/S. You may learn more about the program 
at https://www.facebook.com/OpenAcademyProgram . 

Participants in Open Academy will work regularly with a remote mentor 
from an open-source project who will provide technical guidance and 
supervision. The program begins with an October kickoff event, Code Sprint, 
held at Facebook HQ in which all parties come together for an intensive 
weekend of learning, hacking and building connections. The Code Sprint 
is the weekend of October 10 -12, 2014. Attendance at the Code Sprint is 
mandatory for participation and will be sponsored. Throughout the term you 
would also have regular meetings with Daniel Leyzberg or me to support 
your progress, and you would complete the regular IW progress reports, 
poster session, and final report. 

Here are projects available for this fall:
