Google Summer of Code at 52°North 2014
The Google Summer of Code 2014 was announced earlier than ever before, in October 2013, and it is a special anniversary version, see http://google-opensource.blogspot.de/2013/10/google-code-in-2013-and-google-summer.html
. More money, more students, more organisations!
We at 52°North have been eagerly waiting for this to happen, since we already had two great summers (GSoC2012
) and we are extremely happy that we have again a chance to work with students from all over the world on exciting software projects. And this we have more students and more mentors than ever before!
About the Programme
"... the more code out there, the more everyone benefits."
Google Summer of Code (informally sometimes GSoC
) is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects, more info here
. 52°North plans to apply to the program with project ideas from all communities to connect with prospective developers of our Open Source software from all over the world. In short
, a student will get paid $5500 (10th anniversary special!) by Google to work on 52°North software for 3 months during the summer, and will be advised by a mentor from a 52°North partner organisation.
