Hey all,

As we’ve previously announced through different channels, Haskell.org was accepted into Google Summer of Code 2018.

Google Summer of Code

Students application have now opened. Students can submit their proposal at the Summer of Code Dashboard. The deadline for submissions is the 27th of March.

We are also seeking mentors for possible projects. This year, we would like to assign a back-up mentor for each student. If you are interested in mentoring, please contact us so we can add you to the mentor list directly. Having good mentors is an important factor in making the students feel welcome and guiding them to a succesful completion of their projects.

If you would like to apply but you don’t know how to start your proposal, have a look at our ideas list and this great guide.

Lastly, we recognize that inclusion is an important part of our mission to promote Haskell. Therefore, we strongly encourage applications from people in communities that are underrepresented in functional programming, including but not limited to women; people of color; people in gender, sexual and romantic minorities; people with disabilities; people residing in Asia, Africa, or Latin America; and people who have never taken part in similar programs before.
