So, Google is running an another edition of Google Code-In this year. I’ve been involved in its very first edition (called Google Highly Open Participation Contest) for the MoinMoin wiki project. Long story short, I volunteered to help this year too. It will probably be just one small task, but I’m looking forward to it anyway.

Today, Google announced its Highly Open Participation Contest, a follow-up to the greatly successful Summer of Code program aimed at pre-university students! This is a pilot edition of a program, which requires students to complete tasks prepared by various open source organizations. In contrary to SoC, however, not all tasks are coding-oriented, so that they can provide a good introduction to the open source world for students, who are not (yet!) programming gurus. You can find more detailed information on the project’s FAQ page.
There are prizes for successful students, with a small monetary award for completing at least 3 tasks, and a Grand Prize for the best ones. GHOPC starts today, so don’t miss it!
P.S. spread the word.
