Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Since 2011, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization that pairs students with developers from its community to work on 3-month programming projects. Students are paid a stipend by Google. Between 2016 and 2019, INCF paired 66 students with 80 mentors.
The student application period opens on the Google platform March 16 - 31, but to be successful students will need to have interacted with mentors beforehand to formulate and agree on ideas for their proposals. See the GSoC section on our Neurostars forum for current and past project idea discussions.
INCF is applying to the 2020 GSOC. Here is our list with project ideas and contact details to the mentors.
