Introduce Students to Open-Source Software Development
Google’s new Code-In competition, which gets under way November 22, presents 13- to 18-year-olds with eight tasks, ranging from refactoring code and interface design to such not-so-techie jobs as writing and editing software documentation and developing marketing materials. For every three tasks they complete, students earn $100, up to a maximum of $500. Ten grand-prize winners will get an all-expenses-paid trip with a family member to Google’s Mountain View, California headquarters. The trip includes a tour of the Googleplex facility and meetings with some of the company’s engineers.
Deadline: Contest ends January 10, 2011; winners announced February 14, 2011
