Current Programs

The Jenkins community participates in the following programs:

Google Summer of Code

Jenkins GSoC

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual, international, program which encourages college-aged students to participate with open source projects during the summer break between classes.

Students accepted into the program receive a stipend, paid by Google, to work on well-defined projects to improve or enhance the Jenkins project. In exchange, numerous Jenkins community members volunteer as "mentors" for students to help integrate them into the open source community and succeed in completing their summer projects.

For more information, see our GSoC project page.

To contact us regarding this program, send us a message on the Jenkins Community Discourse or contact us on the GSoC Gitter channel.

The She Code Africa Contributhon is a boot camp where African women are paid to work with open source organizations on selected projects with dedicated mentors. This program aims to create a more diverse, inclusive, and innovative culture within the African open source ecosystem by matching African women in technology with sponsors and mentors of open source organizations.

To contact us regarding this program, send us a message on the Advocacy and Outreach Gitter channel or reach out to She Code Africa.



Hacktoberfest is a month long celebration of open source software. Its mission is to give back to the open source community.
