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: http://prezi.com/tzkpitqbwvah/google-summer-of-code-2014
