XWiki has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2013.

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together nearly 6,000 successful student participants and over 3000 mentors from over 100 countries worldwide, all for the love of code. 

This is our 8th year participating in the program and we are pretty excited about it. We value the participation in the program since it allows us to meet and discuss ideas with smart students from around the world. The past years brought great results, such as the WebDAV and RESTful remote access APIs, the Office importer, and the whole XEclipse project, just to name a few.

This year we're proposing a lot of interesting projects, from Live Notifications to XCLAMS Federated Servers, beside our regular mentors also having the support of mentors from the XCLAMS community.

The student application period will last from April 22 until May 3, 19:00 UTC. Students interested in applying for a project with XWiki should:

Let's work together with the community to make this a great Summer of Code!
