ESIP is honored to be selected again as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code! Google Summer of Code (GSoC) sponsors students to work full-time for 3-months on open source projects during the summer, supervised by a senior contributor from the mentoring organization.
“As usual, we received more applications this year than we did last year, about twice as many as we are able to accept into the program. After careful review, we have chosen 207 open source projects to be mentor organizations this year, 28 of which are new to the program,” says Stephanie Taylor, Google Open Source.
