Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a program that allows students to contribute to development of open-source projects, mentored by participating organizations. CERN-SFT participates in GSoC since 2011. In 2017 we have become a GSoC umbrella organization for all software projects in high-energy physics via the HEP Software Foundation.
