Plone Welcomes Students for Google Summer of Code 2019
Thanks to the fine folks at the Python Software Foundation, we look forward to working with three students.
Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school.
Competition to participate is intense, both for open source projects and for students. While Plone has participated successfully many times, for this year other projects got in. Yet, thanks to the friendly folks at the Python Software Foundation, who function as an 'umbrella' organization, we can still work together with three students. Thanks, PSF!
The students are:
- Alok Kumar Singh: GatsbyJs Preview for Plone
- Karan Pratap Sing: Guillotina API Evolution
- Aalekh Jain: Plone Import Export
To them: welcome to the Plone community – we wish you a great learning experience over the coming summer. Congratulations!
Mentoring them will be these fine folks:
- Ramon Navarro Bosch
- Nathan Van Gheem
- Kumar Akshay
- Timo Stollenwerk
- Asko Soukka
- Nilesh Gulia
- Shriyansh Agrawal
- Oshane Bailey
- Dylan Jay
with support from Cris Ewing.
Fun fact: an astounding 5 out of those 9 have been GSoC students themselves!
