    9 Google Code-in (GCI) is intended to help students who may have wanted to get involved in open source but didn't know where to start. By working through the tasks suggested by organizations, contestants will be given the opportunity to engage with the open source community and get involved. The participating open source projects gain the benefit of additional contributions to their project, often in important areas that may get overlooked for whatever reason.

    189189'''Details''': We would like a short paper (roughly 1000 words, with some charts/graphics) that compares and contrasts the Dalvik VM to Parrot VM, describing which characterists each shared, what things are different, how optimizations are done and which ideas Parrot can utilize from Dalvik. This paper should be in an open source format, and can take the form of a blog post or a POD file that can be included with the Parrot documentation or on the Parrot website.
