Rails Girls Summer of Code

Jul - Sept 2014 Worldwide

Rails Girls

Summer of Code

Get Rails Girls students into Open Source software projects!

Welcome to the second edition!

Last year Rails Girls Summer of Code started for the first time and has been a raging success. This year, we will be back and make another Summer full of code happen with your help!

Rails Girls Summer of Code offers three-months full time scholarships to pairs of Rails Girls students, supported by coaches. This community-driven initiative is about learning by doing — expand the knowledge and coding skills by contributing to a great Open Source project.

The Rails Girls Summer of Code program starts 1st of July 2014 and aims at providing sponsored scholarships to 20 students.

This cannot be done without help from our fantastic community. Please consider a donation or help out as a coach, coaching company or supporting organizer!
