Summer of Code 2014

GSoC Banner


GNOME had 35 GSoC students in 2014 and here is the information about their projects.


GNOME will participate as a mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2014!

We need help to make GNOME GSoC a success again. At the moment, the most important thing if you are a GNOME contributor is to help us fill out our ideas page.

If you are a student, you should learn about GNOME and our requirements for GSoC participation, talk to the mentors for the ideas that interest you, make coding contributions to the module you decide to work on, and create your proposal. Browse the ideas on the ideas page, but don't feel limited by them. You can discuss other ideas you have with module maintainers. Base any ideas you propose on the research about the needs of a particular module and make sure there is a mentor interested in guiding you in implementing this idea before basing your application on it.

Feel free to join the #soc channel on GIMPNet (! If you have any questions, please read Google SoC's frequently asked questions first. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to contact GNOME Google Summer of Code administrators AlexandreFranke, ChristopheFergeau, FabianoFidencio, MarinaZhurakhinskaya or EkaterinaGerasimova. You can reach all of us at e-mail alias.

For more resources and GNOME history of participation in GSoC, please see the main GNOME GSoC page.
