Flip bits, not burgers!
So my proposal was selected for Google Summer of Code 2015 under the organisation KDE!
What is Google Summer of Code?
Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. Basically Google shortlists a number of organisations with open source coding projects , and then invites students to apply for the same. It then matches the best students with the projects they applied for, and pays them to code during the summers.
And what is KDE?
KDE is an international technology team that creates Free Software for desktop and portable computing. Among KDE’s products are a modern desktop system for Linux and UNIX platforms, comprehensive office productivity and groupware suites and hundreds of software titles in many categories including Internet and Web applications, multimedia, entertainment, educational, graphics and software development.
