Join Twisted for Google Summer of Code and the Outreach Program for Women

Twisted is once again participating in Google's Summer of Code this year, as well as the GNOME Outreach Program for Women. If you're a student interested in working on Twisted as part of a paid internship, please visit our Google SoC page. We use best practices like in-depth code reviews and full coverage unit tests, so this is a great way to improve your technical skills whether you're a beginner or an expert programmer.

In addition, Twisted is once again participating the GNOME Outreach Program for Women, with the generous support of Mozilla, providing a paid internship for one woman to spend the summer participating in and contributing to Twisted. Unlike Google's program, the outreach program is not restricted to students; if you qualify, we do encourage you to apply to both. This internship is appropriate for any level of open source experience.

If you have worked on an open source project before, great! If not, we'll help you learn the development and communication tools we use as part of the internship. Some Python experience is a prerequisite, and a small initial contribution to Twisted is a part of applying (if this sounds intimidating, don't worry, we'll help you pick a task to complete and you'll have lots of support as you work through submitting your first patch.) Please check out the full OPW and GSoC descriptions and apply today!
