Great news! Today ThinkUp was accepted as a mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2013. GSoC is a fantastic Google-funded program that pays university students a generous $5,000 USD stipend to hack on an open source project over the summer. As one of the participating projects, we’ll assign a mentor to each student we accept to guide them through the summer and grade them on their finished project.
In short, it’s the best summer job a college student programmer can possibly get.
If you’re a student interested in getting great firsthand experience in open source this summer, check out ThinkUp’s GSoC 2013 profile, and get ready to start submitting your applications starting April 22nd.
