Who is behind the book

Hi I am Shahzad Saeed, a graduate student and the same guy behind the student project tips blog TechAndProject.com It has been 3 years since I started my blog and helping people who are willing to do various projects.

Successful GSoC is not just getting selected

Some people believe that successful GSoC means just getting your proposal selected for GSoC. You are wrong! You have a full summer ahead for a big work. We understand this! So this guide not only directs what should you do to get your proposal selected, it also guide you the later process for scheduling your time for coding to submitting your final code.

What People are saying

Akhil Abraham, GSoC aspirant

I am a computer science engineering student. I had some experience in coding for college coding projects. I am good at C, C++ programming and have basic idea about programming with JAVA. But I have no previous open source software project coding experience.

And I was lucky enough to read the Definitive Guide to Google Summer of Code ebook. I just want to thank Shahzad for his wonderful work. Now I am looking forward to join Summer of Code.

Anuraj, GSoC aspirant

I am a graphic designer and I used to play with different programming languages like PHP, HTML, C, C++ and Java

I was really confused at the stage of choosing an appropriate organization and project for GSoC. After reading Shahzad's ebook, now I have a precised idea about what to do when during the GSoC program
