Google Summer of Code at 52°North 2016

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 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.

And explore the web for personal experiences and more about GSoC - there are a lot of those! See also this nice prezi:
