Today is the first day of coding for our 8th year of the Google Summer of Code program. This year 1,208 students will spend the next 12 weeks writing code for 180 different open source organizations. Students are working on a diverse group of projects ranging from developing game systems to Spotify integration for existing tools to modules for group theory.
We are excited to see the contributions this year’s students will make to the open source community.
For more information on important dates for the program please visit our timeline.
Have a great summer!
