Google Summer of Code 2018

Google Summer of Code 2018


Google Summer of Code 2018 is a global programme focused on introducing students to open source software development. Students work on a 3 month programming project with an open source organization during their break from university. Since its inception in 2005, the programme has brought over 13,000 student participants and 12,000 mentors from over 125 countries worldwide.


APPLICATION WINDOW

CLOSED


DEADLINE

27 Mar 2018


PRIZES

Student participants are paired with a mentor from the participating organizations, gaining exposure to real-world software development and techniques. Students have the opportunity to spend the break between their school semesters earning a stipend while working in areas related to their interests.

Participating organizations are able to identify and bring in new developers who implement new features and hopefully continue to contribute to open source even after the programme is over.

Most importantly, more code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
