Summer of Haskell

Summer of Haskell 2017 Announcement

Posted on February 28, 2017 by Niki Vazou & Jasper Van der Jeugt (permalink)

Dear Haskellers,

We are sorry to announce that this year Haskell.org http://haskell.org/ was not accepted for the 2017 Google Summer of Code. But, as last year, we plan to organize our own Summer of Haskell!

We ask for your help to plan a successful Summer of Haskell 2017. As last year, one student will be funded directly out of Haskell.org http://haskell.org/ general funds. The key factor in how many further students we can fund is the generosity and support of donors. Funding a single student plus overhead costs 6000 USD. We are looking for donors willing to cover half, one or more students. If you (or your organization) are interested in becoming a Summer of Haskell donor please reach out to committee at haskell.org. We also encourage you to make a smaller donation, as if we receive enough of small donations in total, we will combine them to fund more students.

Donation information is at:

https://wiki.haskell.org/Donate_to_Haskell.org

More information will be forthcoming as we work out the details.

Feel free to contact us at (nvazou at cs.umd.edu and m at jaspervdj.be) if want to help or if you have any ideas, questions, or concerns.

Best,

Niki Vazou & Jasper Van der Jeugt
for the Haskell.org Committee
