Google Summer of Code

leave a comment »

Just completing its third year, Google Summer of Code introduces students to open source development and real world programming challenges. Paired with a mentor from a particular Open Source project, such as the Python Software Foundation, successful student applicants spend twelve weeks working to complete a pre-arranged project. In return, students receive an immerse education in Open Source development, a stipend, certificate of completion, and most importantly a T-shirt!

During Google Summer of Code 2007, Google provided more than five million dollars in funding to Open Source through a combination of student stipends and donations to the participating organizations. Over the past three years we have seen over 1500 students from 90 countries complete their projects and provided over ten million dollars in funding to the community.
