GSoC-R 2008-2014

Information about Google Summer of Code (GSoC) Projects of the R Project for Statistical Computing during the years 2008-2014

To find the accepted and successful GSoC-R projects from 2009 to 2014, go to one of the Melange pages gsoc2009 | gsoc2010 | gsoc2011 | gsoc2012 | gsoc2013 | gsoc2014 , or "Select Program" on the right, and then click on "Accepted Projects" on the left. In the table that appears, enter "R Project for Statistical Computing" (2010-2014) or "R Foundation for Statistical Computing" (2009) as 'Organization', and the accepted successful projects of that year will get listed.
