The 20th year of the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program gives new contributors an opportunity to be part of open source projects and gain real world experience by working on a 12+ week coding project with one of ~150 open source organizations under the guidance of dedicated mentors.
Since 2005, GSoC has brought more than 20,000 students and new contributors from 116 countries into open source software development.
- Motivate developers to begin participating in open source software development.
- Help open source projects bring in new developers into their communities.
- Give new contributors exposure to real world open source software development scenarios (e.g., testing, version control, software licensing, etc.).
- Create more open source code for everyone.
