Hello Mentors and Org Admins,
We are pleased to announce Google Summer of Code 2020, the 16th consecutive year of the program.
The program announcement, timeline, marketing materials (slide deck, flyers), FAQs, and short videos with tips for mentors and students are all available. You'll also notice the 2019 program has now been archived.
Organizations -- If you would like to apply for the 2020 program please start thinking about the projects you would like students to work on and also reach out to your community members to ask if they would like to be mentors for the program. Having a thorough and well thought out list of Project Ideas is the most important part of your application.
Encourage other open source orgs to apply -- Please also consider encouraging other open source projects to apply and be a first time GSoC org - we’re hoping to accept more orgs in 2020 than ever before with a good number of them being first time orgs. When orgs apply they can put your org down as a reference.
Please note that Org applications will open on January 14th.
This year we have shortened the community bonding period to 3 weeks per feedback in the 2019 surveys from students and mentors.
We are looking forward to another exciting year of GSoC!
For any questions about the programs please email us at gsoc-s...@google.com
