Join MuseScore for Google Summer of Code 2018

• Feb 12, 2018 - 21:05

MuseScore has been selected again to be part of Google Summer of Code 2018 (GSoC) with 211 other open source organisations! If you are a student and you have aspirations to help improve the open source MuseScore notation software during the summertime (May 14 to August 14), this is a unique opportunity to work together with the MuseScore developers and get paid for it. Learn how GSoC works and read through the student guide.

If you are considering applying, we have a list of ideas you can choose from. We'd love if you apply with your own idea. Don’t hesitate to contact the potential mentors from the ideas list or contact us via IRC (#musescore on, via the developer mailing list. We also have a document listing the Steps Toward a Successful Application, make sure to read it!

Don't let yourself be scared off by the knowledge prerequisites. You don’t need to be an expert in all domains, and there is some time for learning within the GSoC period. However, familiarity with Qt/C++ and interest in music and music notation will be helpful. If you still have doubts, read Am I good Enough?

The deadline for to submit a project is March 27 16:00 UTC. In our experience, successful students don't wait for the very last minute to engage with developers.
