Students to Enhance Multiple Open Source Projects

May 9th, 2017 by

Five students will spend this summer putting their coding skills into practice for openSUSE and other projects during this year’s Google Summer of Code.

The international program that matches mentors and students funded 1,315 student projects this year for 201 open source organizations, who will benefit from the active involvement from these new developers.

“We are excited to be selected as a mentoring organization and to mentor these talented, young GSoC students,” said Christian Bruckmayer, one of the openSUSE mentors. “This year’s projects focus on enhancing the capabilities of our open source tools, so that the benefits are shared amongst the open-source ecosystem.”

The student proposals selected this year regarding openSUSE mentoring will help not only the openSUSE Project, but multiple other open-source projects like KDE and the Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) as well as many others.

In addition to the two student proposals selected for openSUSE’s Open Source Event Management project, which is a self hosted solution to organize conferences, two other students will be developing implementations on OSEM for FOSDEM.
