GHOP Prize

I just got the t-shirt, diploma and two stickers for my participation at the first Google Highly Open Participation contest. The t-shirt is a bit big for me (I thought that american L size is the same as european one, but seems it’s not). On the back it says “I power Open Source”.

I enjoyed participating, it is a very good idea both for open source projects and for high school students to get involved in open source. It is a very good introduction for Summer of Code.

It was the first edition but I hope more will come, I will surely participate next year. There weren’t many projects participating but perhaps next years more projects will be involved and a bigger variety of tasks will be available.



  1. No problem with the size, now you have an open source dress:P

  2. I got an XL from NY and it’s just my size (which is XXXL in Europe) … you should have known that sizes are different (they do usually have a chart on the website from the t-shirt provider with the measurements).

  3. They have sent me another one, M size.
    Thank you Google 🙂
