Thanks to the Students and Mentors of 2014!

We'd like to congratulate our successful students in the Summer of Code this year and thank them for their work on making our software better for our community of users and developers!

For more details of their work, check out the projects to which they contributed and the mailing list where they reported their progress.

Color Scheme Editor
Aleksandr Shevchenko

Aleksander developed a new syntax highlighting color scheme editor for MonoDevelop.

Andrew Davis

Andrew worked on a major redesign of the shape tools in Pinta, which are now much more user-friendly and powerful. Among other things, users can now make further edits to shapes after drawing them  (before, they were immediately "flattened" into the image), and shapes can be seamlessly converted from one type to another (for example, by adding additional control points onto a rectangle). Andrew put together a short video demo, and the code will be integrated upstream very soon.

Vlad Brezae

Vlad worked on the JIT improving our x86 backend and optimizing how longs are compiled.

Carlos Costa

Carlos worked on improving the Clang C++/CLI compiler.

Daniel Wardin

Daniel implemented integrated support for GitHub Issues in MonoDevelop.

Harsimran Bath

Harsimran implemented JavaScript support in MonoDevelop, a crucial missing piece in support for web development. He improved syntax highlighting support, and implemented code folding and code completion. His work is currently in the process of being integrated upstream.

Mark Garnett

Mark's project changed substantially since we're completely changing NRefactory to be based on Roslyn, so he needed to work with code that was unstable and/or not written yet. Still he managed to get NRefactory code ported to the almost non existant foundation. Thanks to his efforts MonoDevelop will have a faster transition to Roslyn.

Andrea Francesco Iuorio

Andrea worked on improving the performance of our our parallel garbage collector by implementing a pair of nice optimizations.

Praveena Nimani

Praveena implemented integrated support for GitHub repositories in MonoDevelop.

Sergey Khabibullin

Sergey implemented support for the XUnit.NET unit test framework in MonoDevelop.

Stephan Sundermann

Stephan continued his work on the bindinator project, extending it to better support creating C# bindings to the Clutter and GStreamer frameworks.

Valentín Barros

Valentín worked on completing the port of the F-Spot photo manager from GTK 2 to GTK 3.

Mono Summer of Code 2017

Hey everyone! The Mono team is pleased to announce that we are a mentor organization in the Google Summer of Code 2017! This is the twelfth year of Summer of Code for us, and we're really excited to work with a new group of students.

This is a great opportunity to spend the summer with a great community working on cutting edge open-source C# tools and frameworks. You can hone your development skills by working on large and complex codebases with experienced mentors, and get paid for your hard work too.

If you're an eligible student, the application period runs fromMarch 20th to April 3rd. But don't let that stop you from starting on your proposals! Feel free to introduce yourself to the community and mentors, talk about your ideas, and do some preliminary research to make your proposal as strong as it can be. If you're feeling particularly ambitious, you could even get started on some quick bugfixes and patches to show off your skills; while this isn't required, it i…
