This year, DBpedia will participate for the sixth time in a row in the Google Summer of Code program (GSoC). We are regularly growing our community through GSoC and are currently looking for students who want to join us for a summer of coding. Read below for further details about GSoC and how to apply.
What is GSoC?
Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Funds will be given to students (BSc, MSc, Ph.D.) to work for three months on a specific task. At first, open source organizations announce their student projects and then students should contact the mentor organizations they want to work with and write up a project proposal for the summer. After a selection phase, students are matched with a specific project and a set of mentors to work on the project during the summer.
If you are a GSoC student who wants to apply to our organization, please check our guidelines before you start drafting your project proposal.
This year GSoC timeline is as follows:
|March 12th, 2018||Student applications open (Students can register and submit their applications to mentor organizations.)|
|April 9th, 2018||Student application deadline|
|April 23rd, 2018||Accepted students are announced and paired with a mentor. Bonding period begins.|
