What is Google Summer of Code?
Google Summer of Code (from now on, GSOC) is, according to its own website:
a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school.
GSOC is the inspiration for the Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS), a similar program organized by the European Space Agency in which we also participated, with great success.
