Google Summer of Code
INCF has participated as a mentoring organization since 2011, and participating in GSoC helps us attract student developers into the neuroinformatics community.
From a modest start in 2011 with 2 projects, in 2017 we had 15 projects approved, from a large "project pool" of ideas submitted by our community. 13 of our students successfully completed their projects. That corresponds to more than two full person-years of code development! But the point of GSoC is not only coding - it is also about joining a community. Several of our GSoC project students have gone on to internships or other projects within their project or the wider INCF community.
If you have questions about projects or GSoC in general, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
