Hackystat's First Google Summer of Code

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

The Hackystat Project had a great Google Summer of Code™ 2008 experience. Four students started the program, and while one had to drop due to sudden illness, the other three went on to successfully complete their projects. Shaoxuan Zhang worked on a Wicket-based user interface to Hackystat, and implemented a number of new features including support for "portfolio" analyses. Matthew Bassett developed a Hackystat sensor for Microsoft Team Foundation Server. Eva Wong developed a Hackystat sensor data visualization package using Flare. You can learn more about each student's experience from their own perspective by reading Matthew's, Shaoxuan's, and Eva's blogs. Finally, my blog contains a reflection on Summer of Code from a first time administrator's perspective. We definitely hope to be back next year, and encourage all Open Source communities to participate.

Congratulations to our mentors and students for their many successes this year!
