Google Summer of Code 2010: Limesurvey

The Google Summer of Code results are out and I luckily made it to the final list :D.

For those who aren’t aware of GSOC, The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program, first held from May to August 2005, in which Google selects hundreds of students from across the world who successfully complete a requested free software/open-source coding project during the summer.

The event draws its name from the 1967 Summer of Love (of the Sixties counterculture), and the idea for the SoC came directly from Google’s founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page. This year Google has awarded 1025 projects to about 125 organizations.

I’m working on the project “Limesurvey 1 – File Upload Question Type”

LimeSurvey (formerly PHPSurveyor) is an open source online survey application written in PHP based on a MySQL, PostgreSQL or MSSQL database. It enables users without coding knowledge to develop, publish and collect responses to surveys.

In all there are 3 GSoC students in Limesurvey. While I’m working on the File Upload Question Type project, the other two are working on the Database Storage Engine project.

My proposal is available here, feel free to take a look at it and drop back any feedback.

  1. hello,

    i am pursuing information technology ( II year) at purvanchal university jaunpur. i was interested in being a part of the google summer of code program 2011. but i don’t know much about the process it’ll take to be a part of it.

    i came to know that it is not necessary for one to be an expert with the projects given. i am only proficient in c & c++ and have just put a hand on java. i needed to know whether i am able enough to apply and what did it take you to apply in gsoc because i am only able to find the stuffs that i can apply but i am not very clear with the procedure of applying like how to find a mentoring organization etc.

    it will be a real help if you tell me the processes you went through..
    thank you
