About this event

Come learn about Google Summer of Code from the program lead

Wednesday, October 18th 6-7pm

Swag and snacks will be provided

Over the last 19 years Google Summer of Code (GSoC) has enabled more than 19,000 GSoC contributors from 112 countries to work with over 800 open source projects and produce millions of lines of code since its inception in 2005.

The goals of the program are to:

* Inspire developers to begin participating in open source development.

* Help open source projects bring in new, excited developers into their communities who stay long after their GSoC ends.

* Give new developers exposure to real-world software development scenarios (e.g., testing, version control, software licensing, distributed development, etc.).

* Create more open source code for all.

Programming online from their home, GSoC contributors spend 12+ weeks on their projects earning stipends upon completion of their milestones. Volunteer mentors help GSoC contributors plan their time, answer questions and provide guidance on best practices, project-specific tools, and community norms while helping integrate GSoC contributors into their communities.

GSoC contributors receive an invaluable learning experience, an introduction to the global open source community and something that potential employers love to see on resumes!

GSoC contributor applications generally open in March. Reaching out to orgs in February after they are announced significantly increases your chances of being accepted.
