Open Source internships

This summer me and my friends were looking for internships, I'm sure a lot of people are also in search of a good opportunity.

Working in open source would give you a great understanding of how software is made.

Why you should work on Open Source projects:

  • You get work on production code
  • Learn to work as a team
  • You have a choice, choose your favourite project!
  • Something you could showcase to your future interviewer

Here is the list of open source internships you guys might be interested in

  • *Interns must be currently enrolled or employed at a U.S. university or other research institution and must currently reside in, and be eligible to work in, the United States.
  • ** OSoC is only open to Belgian students.
