Google Code-in is a contest run by Google with a goal of encouraging young (13 to 17 years old) students to participate in open source. Since 2010, Google Code-in has been introducing pre-university students from around the globe to various open source communities. The format of participating in Google Code-in is as follows:
*We create a bunch of tasks for students to work on BRL-CAD.
+
*BRL-CAD will create a list of tasks for students to work upon. Each task will have a mentor associated with it.
*A student picks a task from the list and works on it.
+
*A student picks a task from the list and he/she is assigned a deadline.
*The student can ask questions or get help from mentors and submits their work when they're done.
+
**While a task is claimed no other student can work on that task.
*A BRL-CAD mentor reviews the work and either sends it back for more work or accepts it as completed successfully.
+
*After completion of task it's ready to be reviewed by mentor.
 +
*Based on the performance of the student mentor may approve, disapprove or extend the deadline for the task.

BRL-CAD was one of the ten selected communities in the year 2012. This year we are again applying for the event.

Still integrating prior tasks, we did not apply.  We also needed time to focus on a major release and were quite exhausted after GCI 2014.  We needed a break.

With 393 tasks completed, this was a hugely productive year.  By a simple wallclock conservative measure, those tasks constitute roughly 10 full-time years of effort.

This was the first year doing GCI. BRL-CAD was 1 of 10 organizations selected. Student response was [http://brlcad.org/wiki/Community_Publication_Portal#BRL-CAD_Accomplishments_:_GCI_2012 overwhelming].  We learned a lot and fell in love with the program.

This was the first year of our participation in GCI. Out of 10 organizations chosen, BRL-CAD was one among them. With an overwhelming response, we successfully compeleted the program with enthusiastic pre-university students having a feel of [http://brlcad.org/wiki/Community_Publication_Portal#BRL-CAD_Accomplishments_:_GCI_2012 accomplishment] and gaining a pool of knowledge at the end of the program.
