The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program gives new contributors to open source the opportunity to gain real world experience by working on a 12+ week coding project with one of about 200 open source organizations under the guidance of dedicated mentors.
Since 2005, GSoC has brought more than 18,000 students and new contributors into open source software development.
- To motivate developers to begin participating in open source software development.
- To help open source projects bring in new developers into their communities.
