MetaCPAN Officially Welcomes Our OPfW and GSoC Participants
The MetaCPAN project would like officially to welcome our summer of 2014 Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Outreach Program for Women (OPfW) participants. We had a lot of interest this time around and some great applications. Our OPfW participant is Pattawan Kaewduangdee and our GSoC student is Talina Shrotriya. Both Talina and Pattawan have plans to make some much needed improvements to MetaCPAN and we're really looking forward to working with them. I've linked to both of their Github profiles above in case you want to track their progress commit by commit.
I'd also like to thank the Perl Foundation for its support in both of these programs. Lately I've had a chance to glimpse how much work goes on behind the scenes to make these sorts of programs happen and I can tell you it's impressive to see how much volunteer work is involved in something like this.
