It's this time of the year where students can apply for this great opportunity to write code for opensource projects and get paid by Google!
It's a huge experience, good for your career, and one of the best ways to spend a very useful summer.

Come and meet with some professionals who participated in GSoC from previous years, and get to know more about:
  • Open source.
  • What this program is all about.
  • How to apply.
  • How to get approved.
  • And, any other questions that you may have.
