My Experience with GSoC 2020 @ CERN
Sun 11 November 2020

According to the GSoC wiki, Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is :

A global program that matches students up with open source, free software and technology-related organizations to write code and get paid to do it! The organizations provide mentors who act as guides through the entire process, from learning about the community to contributing code. The idea is to get students involved in and familiar with the open source community and help them to put their summer break to good use.

GSoC 2020 has been a phenomenal experience so far. Through this series of articles, I wish to relate my experience as a student participating in 2020. Here’s how I plan to divide these:

  • Part 0: How I prepared and chose what to work on pre-GSoC
  • Part 1: Will detail the first month of work, from the Community Bonding period up until the first evaluations
  • Part 2: Post GSoC, the conclusion of this series
