Google Summer of Code 2011 is in full swing. Well, it’s almost in full swing: the accepted student proposals were announced today. Many of the students are still wrapping up their winter term exams, so the real fun can’t begin just yet. Today, we enter what Google refers to as the “Community Bonding Period”; this is the time when we mentors get to know our students and prepare them with the information that they’ll need on May 23rd when coding starts in earnest.
The Eclipse Foundation had seventeen (17) student proposals accepted this year. The full list (and I mean full, as in all projects for all participating organizations) is available on the “Melange” site (somebody’s a Frank Herbert fan). Our accepted GSoC Projects are representative of the varied Eclipse Project terrain: we’ll have students working on CDT, e4, Orion, IDE for Education, ECF, EGit, Modeling, and more.
