Top 5 Ways to Get Into GSOC
Google Summer of Code is an annual program that invites university students who want to open source and get paid for it.

So, in order to improve your chances, it’s best to start early (as soon as the program gets announced) and prepare yourself as much as you can. I hope this blog will help you to do just that!
