This repo is used to coordinate efforts around the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program in the Nix community.
GSoC is a program that sponsors students to work on Open Source projects in the summer. A lot of students have to do summer jobs to sustain their living. Instead of that, why not exercise your skills for 3 months while getting paid?
Join us on Freenode #nix-gsoc or create an issue on this repo to discuss a specific topic.
