10 Mar 2021 — by Stefan Hajnoczi

QEMU has been accepted into Google Summer of Code 2021 and we look forward to mentoring talented students from around the world as they make open source contributions this summer. GSoC is a remote work open source internship program where students work on a project for an open source organization like QEMU.

Check out the project ideas page where there are 10 projects that eligible students can apply for. This year we have C, Rust, and Python projects in various areas related to emulation and virtualization.

If you are a student who is interested in doing an internship this summer, head over to QEMU’s GSoC organization page where you can read about how to apply and learn more about Google Summer of Code in general.

The GSoC 2021 timeline is:

  • Student application period - March 29 - April 13
  • Student projects announced - May 17
  • Community bonding period - May 17 - June 7
  • Coding - June 7 - August 16

We look forward to meeting you and answering questions on the #qemu-gsoc IRC channel on!
