Google Code-In (GCI)

Google Code-in is a contest introducing 13-17 year old pre-university students to open source software development. The web site is

The Google Code-in contest is open for pre-university students and typically runs from the start of December until the end of January. Students choose tasks they wish to work on from a range of categories. Upon successful completion of tasks, eligible students can earn prizes (digital certificates, t-shirts, hoodies) and grand prize winners will receive a trip to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California for themselves and a parent or legal guardian.

Mentoring for RTEMS is a rewarding experience. You get to meet and interact with young smart students who want to learn. Mentors do not need to be RTEMS developers, anyone from the community can mentor.

Google Code-In Projects

If RTEMS is to participate in Google Code-In, then we have to have a nice list of small tasks divided into the following categories. This is the list that participants can see for general information and dynamic task-specific instructions, and the specific tasks are in a spreadsheet and tracked in a git repository.
