Google Code-in is a program for 13 to 18 year old students to get involved in a number of Free Software projects, among them KDE. You will get a cool mentor from the KDE community and work with him or her on exciting tasks. Check out the over 100 tasks that are available currently. We will be adding some more in the next days. There are tasks for nearly every area of KDE. You can find translations, coding, artwork, outreach, research and more among them. Some examples: Help Guillermo prepare a news section for his KDE podcast, help Frederik solve a tricky code problem in Parley, help me figure out how to better present KDE on OpenHatch and much more. Found a task you like? Claim it and wait for your mentor to approve it. And then you can start being part of a team that changes the world one step at a time. Get started walking! If you have questions join our IRC channel #kde-soc on freenode or ask on the mailinglist kde-soc at kde.org.
There are prizes involved as well. Students get 100$ for each 3 tasks they finish successfully up to 500$ and the 10 best participants get to go to Google’s headquarter in Mountain View. (It is pretty damn awesome there I can tell you.) A little birdie tells me there are t-shirts involved as well. Go go go!
