Google Code-in (GCI), our contest introducing 13-17 year olds to open source software development, wrapped up last month with jaw-dropping numbers: 3,555 students from 78 countries completed an impressive 16,468 tasks! That’s 265% more students than last year – the previous high during the 7 year contest!
These students spent 7 weeks working online with 25 open source organizations, writing code, writing and editing documentation, designing UI elements and logos, conducting research, developing videos teaching others about open source software, as well as finding (and fixing!) hundreds of bugs.
