I’d like to introduce the 13 students that are being mentored by Mozilla this year as part of Google Summer of Code 2016! Currently the “community bonding” period is ongoing, but we are on the cusp of the “coding period” starting.
As part of Google Summer of Code (GSoC), we ask students to provide weekly updates of their progress in a public area (usually a blog). If you’re interested in a particular project, please follow along! Lastly, remember that GSoC is a community effort: if a student is working in an area where you consider yourself knowledgable, please introduce yourself and offer to provide help and/or advice!
Below is a listing of each student’s project (linked to their weekly updates), the name of each student and the name of their mentor(s).
