Python Summer of Code

Students: get paid to work on open source projects!

Projects: find new contributors and mentor the next generation!

What is it?


Python is a popular high-level programming language. It is a general-purpose language used by scientists, developers, and many others who want to work more quickly and integrate systems more effectively.

Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers post-secondary students an opportunity to be paid for contributing to an open source project over a three month period.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is an organization devoted to advancing open source technology related to the Python programming language. Since 2005, the Python Software Foundation has participated in Google Summer of Code, serving as an "umbrella organization" to a variety of Python-related projects, as well as sponsoring projects related to the development of the Python language. Python provides mentors, Google provides the program (and the money!), and students write code!

We are hoping to participate in GSoC 2019 and are in the process of gathering ideas for our application! Sub org ideas pages are due Feb 4, so students can expect project ideas to be ready for viewing around then.
