Announcing our four Summer of Code students!

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve accepted four students for this year’s Summer of Code!

  • Gadu-Gadu PRPL improvements by Tomasz Wasilczyk, mentored by Ethan Blanton
  • Plugin website by Nikhil Bafna, mentored by Kevin Stange
  • Usage stats collection by Sanket Agarwal, mentored by Eion Robb
  • libpurple on Android by Michael Zangl, mentored by Mark Doliner

It’s always difficult to narrow down so many great applications into just a handful, and we want to thank everyone who applied. The coding period runs from May 21 through August 24. If you want to follow the progress of the four students, they’ll be providing periodic status updates to our devel mailing list throughout the summer.
