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 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 professionals.
Contribute to something meaningful while learning and earning.
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.
Attract attention that can lead to an internship or job after graduation.
Create lifetime connections and associations.
