We are very happy to again be one of the organisations selected for Google Summer of Code (GSoC)!
Last year we had two students working on Matrix-projects over the summer - you can read the retrospective here - and now we are again offering students to work on Matrix as part of GSoC! Currently we are in the stage where students can propose interesting project ideas to any of the open source organisations picked by Google. Of course, we encourage students to get in touch with us and discuss their ideas before writing their application - please come say hi in the #gsoc:matrix.org room!
We are very eager to see what ideas students come up with. We have added our own ideas here, but students are expected to do some research and come up with their own ideas for projects. We have also written down some general tips on what to include in the application.
Applications can be submitted from March 20th, so there's still plenty of time to have a play with Matrix and come up with a cool project idea!
The Foundation needs you
The Matrix.org Foundation is a non-profit and only relies on donations to operate. Its core mission is to maintain the Matrix Specification, but it does much more than that.
It maintains the matrix.org homeserver and hosts several bridges for free. It fights for our collective rights to digital privacy and dignity.Support us
