Two wonderful students are working on Jekyll as a part of Google Summer of Code! I thought we should tell people about it in this intro & teaser.

@jekyll/gsoc, what do you think? 馃槃

+This year, Jekyll applied to be a part of [Google Summer of Code](https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/). Students were able to propose any project related to Jekyll. With a gracious sponsorship from GitHub and the participation of myself, [@benbalter](https://github.com/benbalter) and [@jldec](https://github.com/jldec), Jekyll was able to accept two students for the 2016 season, [@mertkahyaoglu](https://github.com/mertkahyaoglu) and [@rush-skills](https://github.com/rush-skills).

Obviously your call, but could use jekyll-mentions here if you wanted.

Didn't we find that jemoji and jekyll-mentions mucked with the HTML document? :shrug:

+These students are working on a project that fills a huge need for the community: **a graphical solution for managing your site's content.** Current plans include a fully-integrated admin which spins up when you run `jekyll serve` and a web interface at an address like `http://localhost:4000/admin/`. The server implements a common interface which would make a hosted version to make updates to hosted content like a repository on GitHub very easy to write 鈥 simply implement the CRUD API and the web interface will happily use that instead.

"Graphical solution" feels Microsofty. "Web interface"?

@benbalter I wanted to be generic because it could morph into anything. But the key being a friendlier user interface than a text editor. 馃槃 Hm... Like:
