Student Opportunities

Summer Opportunities!

Google Summer of Code is designed to encourage college student
participation in open source development. Begun in 2005, the program has several goals, which are the following: Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development, provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer, give students more exposure to real­world software development scenarios (e.g., distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing ­list etiquette, etc.), get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all, and help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and committers.

They will be offering successful student contributors a 5,000 USD stipend,
enabling them to focus on their coding projects for three months. This
program is done completely online. Students and mentors from more than
100 countries have participated in past years.

Student applications will be accepted from April 22 ­to May 3, 2013.
