Google Summer Of Code – Squeak’n style
16 April, 2007
Thanks to a lot of very hard work by Giovanni Corriga all the mentors and applicants, Squeak was selected for five projects in the Google Summer of Code.
It is a great pleasure for me, as the admin of the Squeak Summer of Code effort, to introduce to you the five projects that have been selected for this year’s Summer of Code. They are:
“Developing a package model”
by Damien Cassou, mentored by Stephane Ducasse
“Improving the Compiler frameworks”
by Mathieu Suen, mentored by Marcus Denker
“A Squeak HTML/CSS Viewer”
by Jerome Chauveau, mentored by Todd Blanchard
by Benjamin Vanderheyden Schroeder, mentored by Ralph Johnson
“One Wiki to Rule Them All”
by Oleg Korsak, mentored by Keith Patrick Hodges
These five projects have been selected among the 35 proposals submitted by 25 students. This hasn’t been an easy task for the mentors, because the good proposals were many and the competition fierce. I’d like to thank all the students who applied, and invite all of them to propose us a project for the 2008 edition of the Summer of Code.
But in the end Squeak could get more than just this five projects: I have been contacted by a couple of students who are still interested in working on their proposed projects, either under the SummerTalk banner, or just in their spare time.
Again, I’d like to thank all the students and the mentors involved in this effort for all the work they’ve done. Thanks, guys!
