Google Summer of Code

Revision as of 05:40, 18 March 2019 by Rppt (talk | contribs)



Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a program where Google pairs university students with open source organizations to work together over the summer. For their efforts, students are rewarded with stipends provided by Google. During the summer break students work on ideas for open-souce projects while mentors from the projects help them by providing support and code reviews.

What are the requirements to be accepted for GSoC?

Apart from the official requirements you will have to meet the following:

  • Successfully clone and compile CRIU
  • Subscribe to the mailing list
  • Have a small upstream contribution

How can I have an upstream contribution?

As strange as it might look like, this is a proof that you have managed to clone and build your own CRIU, and subscribed to the list. Don't worry, there are no requirements on the initial contribution when it comes to complexity or a size of the change. Before working on a patch, please read How to submit patches and Installation.
