Google Summer of Code 2021 Information

What is Google Summer of Code?
Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 10 week programming project during their break from school.

How it works
Students contact the mentor organizations they want to work with and write up a project proposal for the summer. If accepted, students spend a few weeks integrating with their organizations prior to the start of coding. Students then have 10 weeks to code, meeting the deadlines agreed upon with their mentors.
