Short description [180 chars, markdown permitted]
We're developing phpMyAdmin, a MySQL web interface. It supports most MySQL features, is widely used by database administrators, and is well supported by hosting providers.
Long description [2000 chars, markdown permitted]
phpMyAdmin is a free and open source tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL with the use of a web browser. It can perform various tasks such as creating, modifying or deleting databases, tables, fields or rows; executing SQL statements; or managing users and permissions.
Students are expected to submit some code as part of the application process to show that they have an understanding of the project. Mentors and other project members will help coach students through submitting a proper pull request, for students who are unfamiliar with the Github workflow.
Students are strongly encouraged to introduce themselves on the [developers mailing list](https://lists.phpmyadmin.net/mailman/listinfo/developers). Nearly all project development discussion is handled through this mailing list, so it's helpful to subscribe and discuss your planned implementation.
Finally, submit your application through the Google site, and keep an eye out for mentor comments or questions. If the mentors have questions, concerns, or need any clarification they will ask through the GSoC site. Please use the application questions from GSoC_2017_student_application_template.
Full application instructions are also posted on our [GSoC wiki page](https://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/)
