Summer of Code

Get Rails Girls students into Open Source!

Welcome to 2015!

Rails Girls Summer of Code started in 2013 and has been a growing success ever since. This year we will be back and hope to make another summer full of code happen with your help!

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

The Rails Girls Summer of Code program starts on the 1st of July 2015 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!

It’s only February, but the whole team is already hard at work to make the upcoming Summer of Code the best one yet! In order to do this we need you. Yes, you, awesome-project-maintainer! Last year we had a huge variety of projects our students got to work on such as Bundler, Spree, Species+, and Rubinius; for each project, one or more maintainers were “project mentors”: the go-to people if students had questions that were specifically about the project. We want to make this happen in 2015, too. For this we want you and your project on board! We’ve made it super-duper easy for you and put together a small and handy guide to submitting your project for the Summer of Code. Here it is! It will hopefully answer most of your questions; and if it doesn’t and you are still confused about something, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Start right now and read how to propose your project - we simply CAN NOT WAIT to get your submissions!
