LibreOffice and the Google Summer of Code 2019

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) an international annual program that has taken place every year since 2005 – and the LibreOffice Project has been involved since 2010. In GSoC, Google awards stipends to students who successfully complete coding tasks for free and open source software projects over the summer.

This year, LibreOffice is taking part again! So if you’re a student, know some C++ and want to get involved with a well-known open source project (and get some financial support from Google too), join in! Proposals will be accepted starting on March 25, but in the meantime you can view a list of ideas for inspiration.

Even though proposals won’t be officially accepted for a few weeks, we encourage you to join the development mailing list and talk about your ideas beforehand, so other developers can give you some feedback.

To learn more about how it works, check out our interview with Gautam Prajapati, who worked on the LibreOffice Viewer for Android app as part of GSoC in 2017:
