What is Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that matches students up with open source, free software and technology-related organizations to write code and get paid to do it! The organizations provide mentors who act as guides through the entire process, from learning about the community to contributing code. The idea is to get students involved in and familiar with the open source community and help them to put their summer break to good use. Accepted students gain exposure to real-world software development and employment opportunities in areas related to their academic pursuits.


The application period for students for GSoC 2019 is from March 25, 2019, to April 9, 2019
