The university students (anywhere from freshmen to PhD students are welcome!) work over the summer to develop one of KStars projects and earn money from Google at the same time. It's a great solid addition to anyone's CV. Students also gain how software is professionally developed, prototyped, and tested so a lot of experience is gained in this project.
If you are such a student, or know of any students, please get in touch with us to discuss how you can prepare yourself for GSoC 2019!
