Step-by-step for students
Why spend your summer working on FOSS?
When you work in the open on free software, you create a body of work that follows you for the rest of your life. Rather than a coding assignment done by thousands of other students and relegated to the bottom of the bit drawer at semester's end, working in FOSS is a chance to contribute to a living project.
Working in FOSS gives you a chance to:
Work with real world large codebases.
Collaborate with real engineers and other professional experts.
Contribute to something meaningful while learning and earning student value.
Learn tools and processes that are just like what you are going to use if you work in technology after graduation.
Make friends and contacts around the globe.
