Joomla did it for the 11th time! We are proud to announce that our application as mentor organization for the 2018 Google Summer of Code™ program (GSoC) has been accepted!
GSoC helps support university level students who get the opportunity to work with mentors on a variety of coding projects that will all be contributed back to the student's mentoring organization. More than an opportunity to find new talents for Joomla and improve the software, GSoC is a big reunion of open source lovers where we can share, learn, teach and have fun.
This year's Joomla! GSoC application was led by Puneet Kala, Sandra Decoux, Yves Hoppe and Tobias Zulauf.
After learning of Joomla!'s acceptance into GSoC, Puneet said:
We are really happy to know the results, our hard work paid off. We are looking forward to having another great year of GSoC for Joomla, we have already started working on building teams and getting project ideas finalized by the production department. Thanks to everyone who helped us achieve this.
