GHOP: The Google Highly Open Participation Contest

Since 2005, the Summer of Code Google Program has been taking an important place with a lot of foundations and students as participants. I’ve been participating since 2006 on this program and I can say that ‘it’s an exciting experience’.

I asked to my self what happened with the people, who are under 18 years old and can’t participate.., why can they not take part of it?, well, the answer for my question is that for the younger people there is another program that is called The Google Highly Open Participation Contest, that is the new Google program that recruit students from primary high school to colleges in order to involve them in open source projects.

That’s a very interesting program, I wish I was young again!, Good luck boys !, new open source hackers are welcome !!!
