At last, open Summer of code 2015 can finally start. Start searching for participants, that is. Open Summer of code is a three week programme, in which students get the opportunity to turn an idea into a real-life product or service, for a real client. Last year, we had some inspiring employers, such as Mobile Vikings and Westtoer. This year will be no different.

About open Summer of code
What can you expect from open Summer of code? Every week, we start out at a new location somewhere in Belgium. These workplaces are top-notch and encourage you even more to put your heart and soul into your project. Plus, it’s fun to see a bit of Belgium. You travel to these locations by train from your own hometown each day.
Interesting clients lead to interesting projects. We could tell you more about that, but even better is to just show you. Here’s where you can find our projects of oSoc14.
