Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on introducing students to open source software development. Students work on a 3 month programming project with an open source organization during their break from university.
Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together almost 13,000 student participants from over 114 countries worldwide. Google Summer of Code has produced over 50 million lines of code for 568 open source organizations.
Selected students will work for 3 months in an open source project and be funded up to $ 4,800 after a monthly evaluation.
Open Technologies Alliance participates in GSOC 2018 with more than 15 open source projects and invites students who wish to contribute, to participate in GSOC 2018 by choosing the project that suits their interests and skills.
