Overview[edit]

Google Code-in is a program run by Google since 2010 that introduces young pre-university students (13 to 17 years old) to open source. BRL-CAD has participated in GCI for a number of years and it works like this:

  • We create a bunch of tasks for students to work on BRL-CAD.
  • A student picks a task from the list and works on it.
  • The student can ask questions or get help from mentors and submits their work when they're done.
  • A BRL-CAD mentor reviews the work and either sends it back for more work or accepts it as completed successfully.

Getting Started Checklist[edit]

Whether you're applying or accepted, we've itemized everything you need to do into a simple CHECKLIST. We're here to help you become new open source developers, so don't be shy if you have any questions.
