XWiki is participating in Google Summer of Code 2011

This summer, Google organizes the seventh edition of the Google Summer of Code program:

 Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. We have worked with the open source community to identify and fund exciting projects for the upcoming summer.

A participant in GSoC since the first edition in 2005, XWiki was left out of the program last year to make way for newer and smaller open source projects, but is back as a mentoring organization this year, and we're ready to give a few lucky students a chance to learn how real world, open source development works in the middle of our wonderful community.

With five years of experience as a GSoC organization, our developers are seasoned mentors, ready to guide students through the entire process. Some students are already mixing in with the developers on our IRC channel, or introducing themselves and their project proposals on the mailing lists. We're very happy to meet and discuss ideas with these interesting students, and we can't wait to see what these collaborations can lead to, since every year we've had great results, such as the WebDAV and RESTful remote access APIs, the Office importer, and the whole XEclipse project, just to name a few.

This year we're proposing a lot of interesting projects, from hard core java to clientside javascript projects, and from mobile devices to the cloud. Of course, the poster child of our GSoC experiences, XEclipse, is ready to receive further improvements, and application development on top of XWiki is also present in this year's proposals.

The student application period just started and lasts until April 8th, 19:00 UTC. Students interested in applying for a project with XWiki should:

Let's work together to make this a great Summer of Code!

Summer Of Code Applications Still Open

Google decided to extend the student registration period in order to allow more students to apply, since most organizations reported (on the private mentors mailing list and on the program's IRC channel) that the number of applications is generally smaller than previous years. At the same time, the quality of the proposals seems to have improved for most organizations.

How do things look for XWiki? ...
