GSoC Results

Congratulations and welcome to the following students who will be joining us for this year's Summer of Code:

[personal profile] anarres: Business and usage statistics
[personal profile] chiming: RTE overhaul
[personal profile] i_xerxes: iPhone client
[personal profile] jportela: Polling system redesign/improvement
[personal profile] mayank: Desktop client
[personal profile] panna: Calendaring system
[personal profile] the_wanlorn: "Named guest" commenting level

We're thrilled and excited to have you guys. Welcome. :)

To those whom we couldn't accept -- thank you for your proposals! There were a lot of great things in there :) I've already had someone ask me whether they could do their proposal outside the GSoC framework, and the answer to that is, yes, totally, in most cases! There's nothing wrong with our users having multiple desktop or mobile clients to choose from, for instance. If your proposal was for something that touches the DW code directly, and someone else was accepted to work on the same thing, we encourage you to get in touch with them and let them know that you're interested in helping out. And if no-one waas accepted to work on your proposal, we'd be happy to have you work on it anyway.

Congrats again to those whose projects were accepted. It's going to be an awesome summer!

I'm really excited for this. Congrats to all the accepted students, and I hope to see all sorts of applicants sticking around. Dreamwidth really does have a great mentoring/community/code environment for getting your hands dirty.

(Plus, if you wanted to do something that wouldn't have worked so well in a competitive proposal environment, you still have a chance to get mentors and excited users. Like, say, if you wanted to write a Blackberry client :D)

Ooh, if there was a Blackberry client, maybe my dearly beloved would start updating again. I'm just sayin'. ;)

Welcome to you all!

I can't even tell you how excited I am to see all those names and descriptions. I feel like DW's cresting a hill and having you all here this summer is going to contribute so much momentum to the project.

Congratulations to everyone, and do please believe her that it was a tough decision. I was lucky enough to witness some of the discussions, and there was much wringing of hands that there were not enough available mentors/slots to take on more people.
