We are pleased to announce that Synfig has been accepted to participate in Google Summer of Code this year again!

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global, online program focused on bringing new contributors into open source software development. GSoC Contributors work with an open source organization on a 12+ week programming project under the guidance of mentors and have the opportunity to get involved into a real software development process, while the organizations can welcome new contributors working on a valuable features, potentially becoming a regular after the summer is over.

This is already a fourth time we participate in this program and we are absolutely excited about this opportunity.

Please note, that this year there are important changes in program rules: the program is no longer limited to students – it is open to all newcomers that are 18 years or older. Also, this year contributors can choose to work on medium (175 hours) or large-sized (350 hours) project.

If you are interested to participate, please check our list of ideas for possible projects. This list is not exhaustive, prospect contributors are encouraged to come with their own proposals (after having their relevance validated by core developers).

Although the application period takes place from April 4 to April 19 (see full program timeline), we require prospective participants to start contributing on simple issues before the actual application deadline: we’ll be picking only those candidates who demonstrated that they can fit into our workflow.

Please make sure to check Getting Started page for more details and feel free to join to this thread at our forum.
