Summer of Code Archives

Julia has greatly benefited from the Google Summer of Code. In the last 6 years, over 70+ students have contributed to Julia and various Julia packages. Many of these students have become regular Julia contributors well beyond their summer projects. Take a look at the Ideas Page and contribute your ideas.

GSoC 2020

In 2020, we are grateful to Google and the GSoC program for funding 16 awesome students working on Julia projects. In addition to the funding from Google, we funded an additional 9 students for the summer. 2020 was also the first year of the MLH Fellowship where we had 11 students working on Julia projects across the ecosystem. You can find out more about the 2020 Julia Season of Contributions on our blog.

GSoC 2019

In 2019, we received an even larger number of very high quality applications but could only fulfill 15 slots through GSoC. Not wanting to lose some very impressive students and their exciting projects, we decided to supplement the program with the Julia Season of Contributions (JSoC), using some community funds. Details on the program were announced here: https://discourse.julialang.org/t/julia-seasons-of-contributions-to-supplement-gsoc/23922
