This is our SymPy GSoC 2012 report. This was our second year as an official mentoring organization for the program. In previous years, students worked for SymPy under the umbrella of other organizations. See http://www.google-melange.com/ for more information about Google Summer of Code.
This year we accepted six students, listed below. All six students were successful in the program.
The application is a draft of the application for each student that they posted on the wiki. It may or may not be exactly the same as the final application that was submitted.
The students updated their blogs weekly throughout the summer with their progress, and may continue to write posts beyond the program.
Each student has written a detailed report on his project, which is linked to under the Report column in the table below.
