What is it?
Python is a popular high-level programming language. It is a general-purpose language used by scientists, developers, and many others who want to work more quickly and integrate systems more effectively.
Google Summer of Code
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers new contributors over 18 an opportunity to be paid for contributing to an open source project over a three month period.
The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is an organization devoted to advancing open source technology related to the Python programming language. Since 2005, the Python Software Foundation has participated in Google Summer of Code, serving as an "umbrella organization" to a variety of Python-related projects, as well as sponsoring projects related to the development of the Python language. Python provides mentors, Google provides the program (and the money!), and GSoC contributors write code!
Python is intending to apply to GSoC 2024.
Contributors: Please start with the Python GSoC getting started guide. We won't have mentors signed up and ready to help you or well-defined project ideas ready until February 2024 or so, but you can go ahead and get some practice on any open source project while you wait.
Mentors and sub-orgs: please contact the org admins if you want to be part of GSoC 2024.
