Students announced for Google Summer of Code 2015

Monday, April 27, 2015


Congratulations to the 1,051 students accepted for our 2015 Google Summer of Code! It was tough for the 137 mentoring organizations to choose from the huge number of applications we received - 6,409 proposals from 4,425 students - and we want to thank everyone who applied.

Accepted students will now enter the community bonding period where they will get to know their mentors and prepare for the program by reading documentation, hanging out in their IRC channel and familiarizing themselves with their new community before beginning their actual coding in May.

If you are interested in learning more about the 137 organizations that the students will be working with during the summer or reviewing important dates, please visit the program website.

We look forward to an exciting and productive summer of coding.
