The  Google  Code­in  contest  gives  students  around  the  world  an  opportunity  to explore  the  world  of open  source  development.  Google  not  only  runs  open  source  software  throughout our business, we value  the  way  the  open source  model encourages  people  to  work  together on shared goals  over the Internet.

Give it a try from November 18th, 2013 to January 6th, 2014!

Participants  complete “tasks” of their choice for a variety of open source software projects.  Students can  earn  t­shirts  and  certificates  for  their  work  and  20  dedicated  students  (2  chosen  by  each software project) will win a trip to Google in Mountain View, CA, USA.
Since   open  source  development  is  much  more  than  just  computer  programming,  there  are  lots  of different kinds of tasks to choose from, broken out into 5 major categories:
1. Code: Writing or refactoring code
2. Documentation/Training: Creating and editing documentation and helping others learn
3.  Outreach/Research:  Community management  and  outreach/marketing, or studying problems and recommending solutions
4. Quality Assurance: Testing to ensure code is of high quality
5. User interface: User experience research or user interface design

We   will  announce  the  10  open  source  projects  that  students  will  be  working  with  on  November  1, 2013 on the Google Open Source blog.
Over   the  past  three  years,  1238  students  from  71   countries  completed  at  least  one  task  in  the contest.   This  year  we  hope to  have  even  more  students  participate  globally.  Please  help  us  spread the word and bring more students into the open source family!
