Kotlin is taking part in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) for the first time!
GSoC is a global online program focused on bringing new contributors into open-source software development. This is an excellent opportunity to work on a 12-week programming project with the Kotlin Foundation under the guidance of mentors from Google, JetBrains, and Gradle, while gaining experience on a real-world project in the open-source community (with a chance to earn a stipend as well!).
From our partners:
Here are the proposed projects:
- Kotlin Multiplatform protobufs
- Kotlin Compiler error messages
- Kotlin Multiplatform libraries
- Groovy to Kotlin Gradle DSL converter
- Eclipse Gradle KTS editing
- Improve support for parameter forwarding in the Kotlin plugin for IntelliJ IDEA
- Enhance the
kotlinx-benchmarklibrary API and user experience
- Parallel stacks for Kotlin Coroutines in the debugger
Submit a proposal from March 20 to April 4 to be considered for one of these projects.
To get started, please check the main contributor guidelines:
- Check out the GSoC FAQ and program announcement.
- Familiarize yourself with the Kotlin language.
- Get to know the Kotlin open-source community and explore the general Kotlin contribution guidelines.
- Refer to the GSoC contributor guidelines.
- Check out the project ideas and select the one you’d like to work on.
- Apply via the GSoC website.
Thank you! We look forward to reading your applications!
