About Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects.

They have worked with several open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period.

Since its inception, the program has brought together over 4500 successful student participants and over 3000 mentors from over 100 countries worldwide, all for the love of code.

Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits.

In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers.

Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.
