Google Code-in starts Monday November 26, 2012

Check out this fun contest for teens 13 – 17 to complete a bunch of challenges and online tasks. Run by our friends at Google so you know its going to be fun!

The Google Code-in contest starts Monday, November 26. In this annual contest, pre-university students (13-17 years old) work on fun online tasks—such as documentation, marketing outreach, software coding, user experience research—for 10 different open source organizations. The end result? Students get to learn about and create open source software that people all over the world can use. Grand prize winners will get to visit the Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif.

My guess is that it will involve heavy use of Google tools like Google + and Hang Outs.  I would suggest you get your accounts up and running over the weekend so you’re ready!

More information available on  Google+, the Google blog post, and the program site.

Get in at the start of it and you won’t miss the first Google hang-out on the Code-in, November 26 at 2:00 PST.
