Christmas vacation has started today in Kerala schools.

I'm informing students I know about Google Code In and asking them to share with their peers. It's a wonderful opportunity to start contributing to Open Source softwares. When I was 13, I didn't have anyone to guide me. I came to know of GCI somehow through the internet.

When I started, it was hard. But I managed to finish a task. When I got the goodies from Google, it was a motivation for me to continue in OSS.

I learnt git from my first GCI. This beginning helped me to contribute more to FOSS. I learnt a lot from my 4 GCI experiences.

My contribution is still in Mediawiki software, which powers thousands of wiki sites.

So.. yes, GCI is a wonderful opportunity and lot of students don't know about it.

Share !! ❤️
