Summer of Haskell

Google Summer of Code in 2022

Posted on February 1, 2022 by Ida Bzowska (permalink)

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global, online program focused on bringing new contributors to open-source software development. GSoC Contributors work with an open-source organization on a 12+ week programming project under the guidance of mentors. As in previous years, will be applying to join this program as open-source organization. However, some changes have been made!

Who can join

In 2022, the program will be addressed to all newcomers of open source that are 18 years and older. GSoC will no longer be solely focused on university students or recent graduates - people that are at various stages of their career, recent career changers, self-taught, those returning to the workforce, etc., are welcome to join. Those changes should better fulfill the needs of open source communities and provide more flexibility to both projects and contributors.

Time frames

Organizers are aware that not everyone can devote an entire summer to coding. Offered projects are available in multiple sizes: medium (~175 hours) and large (~350 hours). There’s an availability to join a 12-week program or extend the deadline - up to 22 weeks.

Projects ideas submissions

Are you working on a Haskell project, and you could use the help of a student during the summer? Consider contributing it as an idea here! Send a pull request to our github repository (example from 2020). If you just want to discuss a possible idea, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us or/and read through the student/contributor guide.


We encourage you to explore GSoC’s webpage, and you can learn more on the FAQ website. All the updates about this year’s GSoC edition can be found in this blogpost.
