Development / Summer of Code

This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).

Since 2007, the MetaBrainz Foundation has been a regular participant in the Google Summer of Code program. We've had great success with the program, with some contributors remaining involved in the community afterwards, even going as far as to hire several of our past contributors (now mentors) as full-time employees.

If you're interested in becoming a GSoC contributor under the MetaBrainz Foundation, be sure to read up on Getting started.
