The Google Summer of Code Team around Stephanie Taylor organised a meetup for GSoC participants of 2017 at the Google office in Zurich on February 7th, 2018. The attendees came from all around the world. Allon Moritz from Switzerland and Flavius Andrei Isac from Romania attended the event to represent Joomla.
It was an inspiring event where we could get in touch with mentors from organisations like Drupal or Gnome. It was interesting to see the different experiences others had during the GSoC time.
The highlight of the meetup was the lightning talks. The mentors and admins presented their projects. Flavius did a talk about the Parallel Testing project and Allon about how the New Media Manager got cloud support. Both got great feedback.
The whole event showed us how important the project is for volunteer based organisations and also for students. So we are happy that Joomla got selected again as mentor organisation for GSoC 2018!
