The Accepted Students and Proposals
It is my pleasure to report that all five proposals that we selected for the Google Summer of Code on behalf of the Perl Foundation have been accepted for inclusion in the program this year.
The five proposals are:
- Proposal: A JIT compiler for MoarVM
- Student: Bart Wiegmans
- Mentor: Jonathan Worthington
- Project: Perl6, Rakudo
Backup/additional mentors: Timo Paulssen
- Student: Chirag Agrawal
- Mentor: Reini Urban
- Project: Parrot
Proposal: LWP and HTTP modules with SSL support
- Student: Filip Sergot
- Mentor: FROGGS
- Project: Perl6
Backup/additional mentors: Moritz Lenz, Will "Coke" Coleda, Tadeusz Sośnierz
- Student: skullbocks
- Mentor: mudler
- Project: Google at Home
Backup/additional mentors: Vytas Dauksa
- Student: Talina Shrotriya
- Mentor: Olaf Alders
- Project: MetaCPAN
- Backup/additional mentors: Randy Stauner
The next few weeks will see the students and mentors start work on the projects and start the process of writing code. As we progress through the program it is my intention to make sure the students and mentors post regular updates to blogs and to update the community on how well we are progressing.
Let me take the opportunity to thank all the students and mentors who applied and were not succesful this year in either being accepted or having a student to administer. Your willingness and enthusiam is why we have been able to re-join this programme and gain succesful applications and I cannot thank you enough for that.
Please make sure you keep up with the event and talk to us on list and in channel, there may be an opportunity to help with the Google Code-in or next year's Summer of Code.
