Every once in a while I decide to install the latest FFmpeg/FFmbc on my machine. Despite all the recent upheaval in the FFmpeg camp, it is still a fabulous open source file transcoding tool. However, I am much more interested in these tools from a professional level, and thus now use FFmbc.

While this is unfortunate from the standpoint of socializing and having fun, it arguably keeps the students on track for great success. For students that are particularly motivated and education-focused, Google hosts its legendary Summer of Code. This program pairs future developers with open source projects. Not only do these young folks learn, but they get to contribute to the projects as well. Today, the search giant shares the nationalities of the students participating in Summer of Code 2016.
