Call for Applications: Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2024 for Student Developers

Google Summer of Code is a global, online program that introduces new participants to open-source software development. GSoC Contributors collaborate with an open-source organization on a programming project lasting 12 or more weeks, guided by mentors. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a program that aims to attract new, enthusiastic contributors to open-source communities in the hopes that they would continue to contribute long after their GSoC program has ended.

New contributors to open source will spend their summer writing code for an open source organization under the guidance of mentors from their new open source community. Since 2005, the Google Summer of Code program has brought together over 20,000 new contributors/students with over 800 open-source organizations under the guidance of 19,000+ mentors.
