Rails Girls Summer of Code

About Rails Girls Summer of Code

So what is Rails Girls Summer of Code all about?

Rails Girls Summer of Code is a global fellowship program aimed at bringing more diversity into Open Source. Successful applicants are paid a monthly stipend, from July-September, to work on Open Source projects of their choice.

Rails Girls Summer of Code is about helping newcomers to the world of programming further expand their knowledge and skills, by contributing to a worthwhile Open Source project. The focus is not on producing highly sophisticated code, but rather participants learning highly transferable skills from their project work.

Rails Girls Summer of Code is a not for profit organization that operates solely on the generous donations of sponsors, and individuals from the community.

Make help make Open Source a better place for everyone.

We want to provide a safe space for everyone involved. Please read our Code of Conduct.
