Google Code-in 2016
Google Code-in is an annual programming competition hosted by Google Inc. that allows pre-university students to complete tasks specified by various, partnering open source organizations. The contest was originally the Google Highly Open Participation Contest, but in 2010, the format was modified into its current state. Students that complete tasks win certificates and T-shirts. Each organization also selects two grand prize award winners who will earn a trip to Google's Headquarters located in MountainView, California.
Students must be between 13 and 17 years old (inclusive) to participate. In addition, students must upload parental consent forms as well as some documentation proving enrollment in a pre-university program.
I joined GCI from November 30, 2016. I joined it because of knowledges and prizes . Students who complete one task earn a certificate. Students who complete three tasks earn a T-shirt in addition to the certificate. There is a maximum of one T-shirt and one certificate per student. At the end of the competition, each organization will choose two students as the grand prize award winners and they will visit Google's MountainView, California, USA headquarters for a four-day trip with an awards ceremony, an opportunity to meet with Google engineers, and a day of sightseeing in San Francisco.
After this program I hope to have more knowledge about different markings on GCI such as GitHub, skill design, PHP code,...and have more beautiful T- shirts from GCD. The FOSSASIA community help me so much. The mentors are very cute and helped me so much and detailed instructions for the task that I have been approved claims. Luckily, Ms Hong Phuc Dang, one of whom mentor from FOSSASIA, have visited Ly Tu Trong High School for the Gifted to introduce about GCI and not only show contest open but also show prizes.
