OBF accepted as a mentoring organisation for GSoC 2020

OBF has been selected as a Google Summer of Code mentor organisation for the 5th consecutive time! We are proud to be hosting over 13 projects from various sub-organisations that aim to promote open science. This year OBF’s application was led by Sarthak Sehgal, Kai Blin, Yo Yehudi, and Michael Crusoe. Last year, GSoC 2019, was another good year with five students successfully completing their projects.

Call to students to apply for GSoC

OBF is welcoming students across the globe with a passion for open science to apply for GSoC. You can view the eligibility criteria here and the whole timeline here. The application portal opens on March 16 but feel free to contact the mentors of projects you are interested in already. It’s a fantastic opportunity to write code, learn about open source development, and be a part of a welcoming and diverse community, while earning a stipend! All information about OBF’s GSoC participation can be found here.

Looking forward to another successful Google Summer of Code!
