Teens, join in the fun with Google Code-in contest
This week is the start of Google Code-in, a contest introducing teens to open source software development. Interested students can now register at the contest site, g.co/codein
, and start claiming and working on tasks designed by 14 open source projects. Students can earn certificates, t-shirts, hoodies and a grand prize trip to Google’s headquarters next summer.
Google Code-in is an opportunity for students to use the skills they have been learning in the classroom and apply them to real open source projects. Students can become involved with these open source communities and see first hand how software projects work while also learning new skills.
