Google is looking for great young software developers to participate in its upcoming Google Code-in 2013 and Google Summer of Code 2014 events.

"Every year, open source software is becoming more important around the globe; from government, healthcare, relief efforts, gaming, to large tech companies and everything in between," say Google's Carol Smith and Stephanie Taylor.

The Code-in event runs for seven weeks, during which competing students will work with 10 selected open source projects on a variety of tasks, according to Google. "These projects have all successfully served as mentoring organizations in previous Google Code-in contests or have worked with university students in our sister program, Google Summer of Code," write Smith and Taylor.

Google representatives are planning to visit 10 countries with high participation throughout the year and will hold 10 developer events to promote the program in celebration of the programs' 10th anniversary. "We're pleased to be running a program that touches a lot of lives around the world, and we hope this will be a celebration of all the accomplishments we've seen from so many of our participants," Smith says.
