Google Code-in

Google Code-in is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to open source software development. Since 2010, 3,213 students from 99 countries have completed over 17,000 open source tasks!

Because Google Code-in is often the first experience many students have with open source, the contest is designed to make it easy for students to jump right in.


Want to work with a real open source software organization while earning cool prizes? Try your hand at Google Code-in.



Open source organizations can join Google Code-in and help the next generation of students learn about open source!



In the 2015 contest, 4776 tasks were completed with 14 open source organizations.
