The community bonding period has just begun. During this time, students get to know their mentors, read documentation and get up to speed to begin work on their projects. Programming will start May 25th. We really look forward to working with them on these exciting projects! Expect a few blog posts by every student and find out more about the projects in the wiki.
The Google Summer of Code program received a total of 6,409 proposals from 4,425 students for 137 mentoring organizations and 1,051 students were accepted (source). 52°North received 16 well-qualified proposal submissions (2014:18). We at 52°North are extremely happy to have gotten 6 slots and have matched them with promising students and capable mentors to work on challenging projects in the enviroCar Project, and Sensor Web, ILWIS, Geoprocessing and 3D communities. A special welcome goes to the new mentors and communities that participate in the summer of code for the first time!
