At innoQ, we routinely provide interested students the opportunity to co-operate on their Master or Diploma Thesis. One very smart student currently working on his master thesis is Dominik Marks, who blogs about his progress on this site. His topic is loose coupling in Web services.
Being able to follow his progress through a blog — which was something we tried out for the first time in this context — is really nice. We’ll definitely encourage folks to do this in the future.
