Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. They work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together over 8,500 successful student participants from 101 countries and over 8,300 mentors from over 109 countries worldwide to produce over 50 million lines of code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.There are projects available in a variety of programming languages such as C#, C++, Python, Java, PHP and more.
Gerry Jenkins will be hosting an Hour of Code event on December 9 and 11th from 3:00 to 4:30 in Room LAC-M116.

One important contribution program advisors make to the Computer & Office Studies Department is to provide recommendations for potential new courses. Before a new course can be offered, we need to know that the professional community agress that the course is relevant.
As a result of our Program Advisory Committee's (PAC) input and support, we have developed two new Android Mobile Application courses which are now being offered.
Also, based on PAC input, the following classes are in development to be taught beginning Fall 2015:
