GSoC: Two Weeks

As organization administrator for Coppermine’s participation in Google’s Summer of Code, I have asked the four students working with our team to provide weekly updates on their progress. After two weeks, things are looking good. I am impressed with the students. As a dev team member and user, I am also excited at the potential features that the next version of Coppermine will have. This is going to be great for Coppermine users.

A few years ago, I was working as an intern… now I’m on the other side of the experience. It’s a nice one to have and I really appreciate Google extending the opportunity to open source teams that wouldn’t otherwise have the financial ability to support such a summer internship-like program. I hope that GSoC will be an annual thing on a permanent basis. :)
