Historically, Google Summer of Code has brought together nearly 6,000 students with over 300 open source projects to create millions of lines of code. We’re looking for mentors and students to join us in making 2013 the best Summer of Code yet!
The Google Summer of Code program is designed to encourage student participation in open source development. Kicking off in 2005, the program has several goals:
• Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development
• Provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer
• Give students more exposure to real-world software development scenarios (e.g., distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing-list etiquette, etc.)
• Get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all
• Help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and committers
We’ll be offering successful student contributors a 5,000 USD stipend, enabling them to focus on their coding projects for three months. This program is done completely online. Students and mentors from more than 100 countries have participated in past years.
Google will accept applications from open source projects from March 18–March 29, 2013. Student applications will be accepted from April 22–May 3, 2013.
Find full details on requirements for participating, including how to apply and info on the all-important t-shirt at http://www.google-melange.com. We hope you'll consider participating as a student, mentor, or organization, or just spreading the word about this great program!
We know you’ve been anxiously awaiting more details on registration for Google I/O 2013, which will be May 15-17, 2013. We appreciate your patience, and the wait is over!
Registration will open on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 7:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and will remain open until tickets are sold out. Based on demand in previous years, we expect to sell out quickly. Just like last year, ticket prices will be USD $900 for general attendees and $300 for academic attendees, and you’ll need a Google+ account and a Google Wallet buyer account to register.
We’ll be sharing more information about registration and travel planning here and on developers.google.com/io before registration opens on the 13th.
We’re looking forward to bringing you an amazing and inspiring Google I/O experience!
