If you are looking for a fun challenge, Google is offering the following: If you are looking for a fun challenge, Google is offering the following: Google’s eighth annual Google Code-in calls on students aged 13–17 to complete coding tasks on open source projects, with the aim of exposing teenagers to open source software development. To date, some 4,500 students have participated in the Google Code-in challenge, completing more than 23,000 tasks. For this year’s Code-in, 25 organizations are providing mentoring for participants, including Ubuntu, Drupal, Wikimedia, and JBoss. The projects range from machine translation to games to medical records systems. Students with little or no coding experience can participate. Students’ work will be judged by participating organizations on creativity, quality, and satisfaction of task requirements. One grand-prize winner will be flown to Google headquarters in California. Other prizes include sweatshirts for finalists, T-shirts for those who complete three or more tasks, and certificates of completion for those who complete one or more tasks. The 2017 Google Code-in website provides complete details for teachers and students, including rules and restrictions, as well as guides and other resources. A unique part of the contest is that each task has mentors from the organization assigned should students have questions or need help along the way. Deadline: Code-in runs through January 17, 2018
