Yes, we have GSoCers ! April 22, 2009

Posted by Sandro Andrade in gsoc2009, planetkde-sandroandrade.

On April 20th 19:00 UTC, just a few seconds before 840 insane users in #gsoc irc channel would have gotten through a nervous attack, Google announced the list of accepted student proposals for Google Summer of Code 2009 (GSoC 2009). 1000 students from 70 countries are now celebrating their acceptance into more than 150 Free and Open Source software projects. We are proud to be one of the top 5 countries for accepted student applicants: United States (212), India (101), Germany (55), Canada (44) and Brazil (43).

We are also very excited to have two Live Blue members accepted for participation in GSoC 2009. The project “Static Code Visualisation in KDevelop” by Sandro Andrade (Brazil – Live Blue) will be mentored by Aleix Pol (Spain) and aims to implement better approaches for program comprehension and developer interaction with software artefacts in KDevelop by means of code visualisation mechanisms. Tomaz Canabrava (Brazil – Live Blue) will mentor the project “Mancala Game with an Interactive Interface” by Mahfuzur Rahman (Bangladesh). Mahfuzur Rahman will implement a family of board games played mostly in Asia and Africa, as part of KDE Games Project.

We hope to have good news to announce soon !
