Kharagpur Winter of Code is a 5-week long online program for the students of various colleges, especially for students of IIT Kharagpur, who are new to open source software development.
It was December 7 when I stumbled upon Kharagpur Winter of Code site. Being new to open source development, this program was really fascinating for me. I wanted to take part in Google Summer of Code, but I was unaware of the procedures, working of the program which made me less confident. This program seemed like a stepping stone into contribution to open source world. I went forward and registered, and did the initial formalities.
