Dear students, if you want to apply for doing a Google Summer of Code project with us you can choose a project from our workgroup's lists but you can also present your own idea fitting to any of the work groups below. Please note that you have to choose “The Linux Foundation” as your mentoring organization, independent of the workgroup where you want to do your project.
Note: If you want to participate as student, you DO NOT need to be member of the GSOC group on the Linux Foundation web site, this group is only for writing these pages and so only useful for mentors.
Do not hesitate to ask questions. Please use the contact info (e-mail, IRC) of the workgroup in which you want to do your project. You find it by following the links below. For general questions about participating as GSoC student in projects of the Linux Foundation, join the #linuxfoundation-gsoc channel on Freenode for questions about GSoC in general, join the #gsoc channel on Feenode.
The Linux Foundation sponsors development in different areas. Each area has a set number of GSoC projects available for 2016 as suggested projects which you can apply for and they are also open for your project suggestion.
