GNOME will be mentoring 9 new contributors in Google Summer of Code 2023

We are happy to announce that GNOME was assigned nine slots for Google Summer of Code projects this year!

GSoC is a program focused on bringing new contributors into open source software development. A number of long term GNOME developers are former GSoC interns, making the program a very valuable entry point for new members in our project.

In 2023 we will mentoring the following projects:

Project Title Contributor Assigned Mentor(s)
Make GNOME platform demos for Workbench Akshay Warrier Sonny Piers
Andy Holmes
Rust and GTK 4 Bustle Rewrite Dave Patrick Caberto Bilal Elmoussaoui
Create a New “System” panel in GNOME Settings Gotam Gorabh Felipe Borges
Implement backlog search in Polari IRC client Gurmannat Sohal Carlos Garnacho
Florian Müllner
Integrate GNOME Network Displays features into GNOME Settings Pedro Sader Azevedo Felipe Borges
Claudio Wunder
Jonas Ådahl
Anupam Kumar
GNOME Crosswords Anagram Support Pratham Gupta jrb
Make GNOME Platform Demos for Workbench Sriyansh Shivam Sonny Piers
Andy Holmes
Add Acrostic Puzzles to GNOME Crosswords Tanmay Patil jrb

As part of the contributor’s acceptance into GSoC they are expected to actively participate in the Community Bonding period (May 4 – 28). The Community Bonding period is intended to help prepare contributors to start contributing at full speed starting May 29.

The new contributors will soon get their blogs added to Planet GNOME making it easy for the GNOME community to get to know them and the projects that they will be working on.

We would like to also thank our mentors for supporting GSoC and helping new contributors enter our project.
