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.

CPPSharp - C++ inline Code improvement
Abhinav Tripathi, mentored by Joao Matos
Improved support for inline code and other expressions in CppSharp.

Mono Summer of Code 2015!

Hey everyone! The Mono team is pleased to announce that we are a mentor organization in the Google Summer of Code 2015! This is the eleventh 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 from March 15-27. 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 is re…
