I’ve always been a huge fan of the Google Summer of Code program, having been involved with it in many capacities over the years.
The 2019 iteration of GSoC has been formally announced and the student application period starts soon.
Here’s the official word from Google:
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) will begin accepting student applications on March 25, 2019. The global, online program is designed to engage university students with open source software communities.
GSoC is a highly competitive and unique program – in the past 14 years we have had over 14,000 students from 109 countries accepted into the program. Participants are paired with a mentor to help introduce them to an open source community and guide them with their project. GSoC gives students invaluable real world experience and an opportunity to receive a stipend to contribute to open source software.
For the 2019 program 206 open source organizations have been accepted into the program. Now is a great time for students to check out project ideas and reach out to the organizations to learn more!
