Summer of Code 2011 - Projects Announced!

The selection results are out, and this year we will have 13 projects on the Summer for Code 2011! Congratulations to the all students that were accepted to work with the Mono Project.

We'd like to thank all the students who've applied. We received a lot of good applications and, as always, slots and mentors are limited, so we had to make some tough decisions.

Excited for This Year's Summer of Code

Here at the Mono Project we've spent the past few weeks reviewing submissions for the Google Summer of Code. There were many excellent proposals so it was a hard choice narrowing them down. Many of our applicants have been contributors in the past who wanted the financial support to give us more of their time. Others were new faces, but showed both skill in laying out a proposal and impressive knowledge of the domain in which they'd accomplish it. All of them showed us a flattering amount of interest in making the Mono Project the best that it can be.

We're happy to now be able to announce the list of accepted projects for 2015:

Contribution to Microsoft .NET and Mono integration
Eddie Rangel, mentored by Marek Safar
Integrating the Microsoft .NET reference sources into Mono.
