52°North mentors contributors during the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2022!
We are so excited to have been selected to be one of 203 mentoring organizations for this year’s Google Summer of Code! The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers students/contributors stipends to write code for Open Source projects.
At 52°North, we pair contributors with mentors and embed their work in the context of ongoing research projects. Hence, GSoC participants gain valuable exposure to real-world software development scenarios. Students also have the opportunity to work in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, we are able to improve our software projects, as well as identify and draw in new developers more easily.
We have a number of project ideas. The overall goals are to improve usability of products and to extend the user base to new domains. Students interested in writing code can find more information at at our GSoC page. Student Application opens APRIL 4, 2022.
