The Google Summer of Code Has Begun and Joomla is In!
University students from many parts of the world will spend the summer break ("winter break" in some countries) writing code and learning about open source development. Joomla! is one of the selected mentoring organizations in Google Summer of Code 2016 (GSoC 2016). Does it mean that students will be coding to make Joomla! even better? Yes! And we invite you all to join us in the GSoC 2016 journey.
Yes, we did it again!
As everything in Joomla!, to be part of GSoC 2016 was a community achievement. Several volunteers got involved to make it happen. And now we have a great team of Joomla! experts looking forward to mentoring students in their projects. The community provided such great ideas to be developed during the GSoC 2016.
We are waiting for committed and talented students to discuss the application ideas. If you are interested in helping, look for us in the GSoC 2016 mailing list.
