Joomla! invited to join Google Highly Open Participation Contest

Would you like a chance to win a trip to the Googleplex, the California headquarters of Google in the heart of the world-famous Silicon Valley, and help Joomla! at the same time?

Well, following on from the success of the Google Summer of Code program, Google has today launched a contest for pre-university students (high school and secondary school students) aimed at encouraging young people to participate in open source projects. Joomla! is proud to have been invited to join with nine other open source organisations for this pilot program which will run until early February 2008.

The Google Highly Open Participation Contest, or GHOP for short, is intended to offer an opportunity to students who may want to get into open source but don't know where to start. By working through a number of pre-defined tasks, contestants will be able to engage with the open source community and get involved at a far earlier time than they might otherwise think they could. At the same time, Joomla! gets the benefit of additional contributions to the project.
