Google Summer of Code
Google Summer of Code (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/) is a program that matches student developers with open source projects. Students get a decent stipend and good experience, the project gets significant code contributions and exposure, and Google foots the bill.
Please see the Google Summer of Code/Processes page for details of how OSM administers GSoC.
Google Summer of Code 2023
The OpenStreetMap org will start preparation for the 2023 edition of Google Summer of Code at the beginning of the year. Please watch the forum for an announcement of the official start.
If you are a student interested in participating, please use the time to familiarize yourself with the OpenStreetMap project:
- Create an account and start contributing data. Get to understand how tagging works, what data there is in your neighborhood and how to update and complete the map.
- Find out where your local community meets and get in contact with them. Start to follow discussions on the forum.
- Work with the software using OpenStreetMap data: editors, renderers, search, routing. We are an umbrella organisation for many projects around OSM. Try to get an understanding what exists and find out which part interests you.
If you already have a project in mind, you can also get in touch with maintainers of the project directly. See if you can already help out with small tasks to get an idea how the project works.
To get an idea about the projects that usually participate, please have a look at the project idea pages of the previous year.
If you are interested in becoming becoming a mentor or helping out with the organisation please get in touch at: email@example.com
