52°North is thrilled to be chosen once again to be a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2014 (GSoC)! The Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. In honor of the Google Summer of Code’s 10th anniversary, Google has upped the student stipend 10 %. Thus, the stipend recipient receives $ 5.500,- for 3 months of successful software development for 52°North. A mentor from a 52°North partner organization supervises the student during this period.
As such, we now look for students who are interested in writing code for various 52°North projects. If you are interested in writing code for software developed by the 52°North communities, please have a look at https://wiki.52north.org/bin/view/Projects/GSoC2014.
Student Application opens on March 10, 2012 at 19:00 UTC – but the discussion can start right now!
This summer, flip bits not burgers with 52°North!
