As a mentoring organization, eligible students will have an opportunity between April 4 and April 19 to submit an application proposal to the GSoC program site. Students should interact with openSUSE mentors through github via comments on the projects. The program is open to university students aged 18 or over.
The annual international program focuses on bringing student developers into open source software development. Students work with open-source organizations on a 10-week programming project during the school break.
Interested students are asked to visit the mentoring website and Google Summer of Code website for more information about the projects and the application process.
The openSUSE Project has participated in several GSoC events since 2006.
