Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code is an annual program in which Google awards stipends to students participating in coding projects for free and open source software projects. Its aim is to get students involved in and familiar with the open source community. phpBB participated in the years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018. Of course we will also be applying to participate again in 2019.
