This meetup series aims to introduce students to Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and help them get started with the application process. It also aims to help students impact the open-source world and its importance in our life, followed by the experience with open source organizations.

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) will begin accepting student applications on March 29, 2021. The global online program is designed to engage students with open source software communities.

GSoC is a highly competitive and unique program - in the past 16 years, we have had over 16,000 students from 111 countries accepted into the program. Participants are paired with a mentor to help introduce them to an open-source community and guide them with their project. GSoC gives students invaluable real-world experience and an opportunity to receive a stipend from contributing to open-source software.
