We are excited to announce the 18 students who have been accepted by Joomla for 2009 Google Summer of Code projects.
Here they are:
Andrea Tarr - Accessible Administrator Templates
These students will be working with our fantastic group of mentors, including: Akarawuth Tamrareang, Alan Langford, Allan Walker, Amit Singh, Andrey Mishenin, Ashwin Date, Brian Shaughnessy, Donald Lobo, Elin Waring, Hugh Boyes, Ian MacLennan, Jennifer Marriott, Luis Galarraga, Marius van Rijnsoever, Oleg Nesterov, Omar Ramos, Parth Lawate, Pisan Chueachatchai, Ray Tsai, Sam Moffatt, Steve Fisher, TJ Baker, Toni Marie Swats, and Wes Morgan.
This year we received a record 147 proposals and were able to accept three more students than last year. We are excited about bringing these students into the Joomla community and for the contributions these projects will make.
Our students and mentors come from 18 different countries on six continents (sorry, Antartica!) and represent the global reach of Joomla.
We had many excellent applications and any student that was not selected as a project in this years GSOC is welcome to work on their projects individually and we will work to match them to appropriate mentors. This will of course be work done outside of the official GSOC and will not allow for any sort of monetary reimbursement. For more information or to let the project know of your interest in individual work please contact Mark Dexter firstname.lastname@example.org .
Again thank you to all of the students that submitted.
