The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce Google has accepted Joomla’s application to participate as a mentor organisation for the Google Summer of Code 2017.

Joomla! is participating in the program for the 10th time since 2005!  This year's Joomla! GSoC application was led by Puneet Kala, Ana Barcellos and Yves Hoppe.

After learning of Joomla's acceptance into GSoC, Puneet said:

Really happy to see the acceptance results, we plan to do even better than previous year, let's do our best to have a great GSoC edition for Joomla!

Students, consider joining Joomla!

We would like to invite all interested students to go through the program details and apply to participate in GSoC.  It’s a fantastic opportunity to write code, learn about open source development, meet great people, while earning a stipend! All information about Joomla! GSoC participation can be found here.

Volunteers, we need you!

There are many ways to help make our participation in GSoC 2017 a success! You can apply as a mentor and share your knowledge with students eager to learn or you can help us with marketing and copywriting to spread the word. If you are interested in helping the Joomla! GSoC team, please get in touch with us and send us an email.

It will be another great Google Summer of Coding!

A big thank you to all volunteers involved in the team, it wouldn’t have been possible without you! We are confident the GSoC 2017 will be once again a great time to make Joomla! even more awesome!

If you are interested in following our team activities, please look at the reports on the Volunteers portal.

We would like to thank Ana Barcellos for all her hard work and commitment to the team for the past year, she has been a great team member. Ana has decided to move on and we wish her all the best!
