We look forward to accepting your contributions to support the use of technology in education. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is "a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects."1

How to Participate

As a student As a mentor By contributing ideas
The most important job of all! Sugar Labs is looking forward to your contribution. To begin, we strongly recommend orienting yourself with the Sugar Labs code base. Be sure to visit http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/.

Please add a summary of your proposal to the wiki on a page called:

Summer_of_Code/2018/Proposal_name

where Proposal_name is the name of your proposal.

You can use this proposal template. (If you are applying to Outreachy, you may use your Outreachy proposal.) Be sure to explain what you want to do, why it is important, and evidence that you can do the work proposed.

Also, be sure to discuss the details of your proposal with members of the Sugar Labs community.

You also need to apply on the Google Summer of Code website.

You can directly benefit a new software developer's coding competency and confidence levels while contributing to Sugar Labs and developing your own first-line management skills. Here you can look for more development ideas –
