For the first time, Twitter participated in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and we want to share news on the resulting open source activities. Unlike many GSoC participating organizations that focus on a single ecosystem, we have a variety of projects spanning multiple programming languages and communities.
We accepted three students to work on a few projects:
As part of GSoC, students and mentoring organizations receive a stipend. We are donating our portion of the stipend to Girls Who Code, an organization we support that introduces high school girls to software development.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to take part in Google Summer of Code. Thank you to our three students, mentors and to Google for the program, we look forward to next year.
