Google Summer of Code 2016

Google Summer of Code 2016 students application period is now open!

Also this year, as an hosted project of OSGeo (Open Source Geospatial Foundation), istSOS [1] welcome students who may want to contribute to the project by implementing new ideas[2].

Are there any students wanting to spend their summer break writing code and learning about open source development while earning 5500 US Dollars
Accepted students will work with a mentor and become a part of the open source community. Many become lifetime open source developers! 

The 2016 student application window is March 14th to 25th.

Here [3] is a link you can find the information need to know about the GSoC. Our suggestions to students are summarized as follows: 
  • check the eligibility requirements first
  • get inspiration and info from the OSGeo Ideas wiki page [3] 
  • if you are new, introduce yourself to the developer team you wish to join (geoservice ]at[ supsi.ch)
Let us remind that you don't need to already be an expert to take part to GSoC - if you are unsure, just ask what are the required skills for a given idea!

istSOS wants you!!
