The GSoC is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development.  Students work with an open source organization on a 3-month programming project during their school break, and the GDP was one of 201 applications accepted among 400 applicants.  The GDP is an open source automotive development platform where prototypes and innovative IVI and connected vehicle solutions can be rapidly developed and demonstrated in an open community.

The GSoC will begin accepting student applications on March 20 and the deadline to submit an application is April 3.  After entering the program, students will be paired with a mentor from the GENIVI delivery team and coding will take place over the summer months with results announced on September 6.
