The Joomla GSoC Team are saddened to announce that Joomla was unsuccessful in its application to be a mentor organisation by for the GSoC 2020 Program. 

We are proud of our efforts in the application process and are disheartened that we will be unable to participate this year to push our proposed projects forward with the help of the GSoC program.

Joomla has participated in GSoC 12 times to date, there have been 2 other years where we also unsuccessful in our bid to participate in the program,, 2010 and 2015, so this year we will take our 5 yearly rest and come back with a new vigour for 2021.

The list of the 200 lucky participants selected for this year’s GSoC program can be found here. We wish every single one of them, their students, mentors and admins the best of luck and look forward to hearing the results of their efforts at the end of this year’s season.

We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the people, both within the GSoC team and those from the wider Joomla Community, who helped to come up with the proposed projects.

We would also like to thank the volunteers who put their names forward as mentors and others that supported us in the background. We truly hope we will get a chance to work together, with all of you, again next year.

Until next time, with many thanks and respect for those organisations chosen.

The Joomla GSoC Team.
