During the [http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2013 Google Summer of Code] google will pay students to participate in open source projects - see the link for additional details. Your work will be released under an open source license, in case of STK that will be GPL 3.0.

For the first time SuperTuxKart will try to participate, i.e. become a mentoring organisation. That means (if we get accepted) that students can work on SuperTuxKart and receive money for it. They will be mentored by one of our experienced developers, and get some good work experience to start their career. Note that while SuperTuxKart is a game appealing to younger audiences, the code base is rather complicated, and our suggested tasks will certainly challenge students.

Our [[GSoC_ideas | list of ideas]] or suggestions is online. Be aware that this is just a list of suggestions, and that students are welcome to apply with their own ideas. However the number of experienced mentors is somewhat limited, and our list of ideas was chosen since those tasks would be most beneficial for the development of SuperTuxKart. If you apply with your own idea, please make sure to discuss this with us beforehand.

Have a look at our [[Coding_Style | coding style]] and study our code, best using the [http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/doxygen/?title=doxygen doxygen] pages. Note that the online version is updated irregularly, so best create your own documentation (just start doxygen in the src directory).
