Student majors in 2013 were predominantly in Computer Science and other technical fields (as expected).  But this year we do have students studying Geography, Linguistics, Marketing, Music, and Political Science. Google Summer of Code certainly attracts a diverse set of students!

Although reviewing statistics each year from Google Summer of Code is fun, we want to stress that being first place is not the point of the program. Our goal is to get more and more students involved in creating free and open source software, and to encourage contribution to projects that have the potential to make a difference worldwide.
