Welcome to GSoC 2016[edit]

This page will aim to be a general informational page for students, mentors and others interested in Joomla's Google Summer of Code Program.

What is GSoC?[edit]

Google Summer of Code is a program run by Google for college students interested in contributing to FOSS projects. Visit the Google Summer of Code site to learn more.

Information For Students[edit]

CMS or Framework?[edit]

Joomla is a community of developers that are currently working on three projects: the Joomla CMS, The Joomla Issue Tracker and the Joomla Framework. The CMS is the very popular and well known FOSS content management system. The Framework existed within the CMS as a tightly coupled set of utility packages and classes. Eventually developers decided they wanted to work with just those utilities and write new applications not coupled to the CMS. The Joomla Issue Tracker is the first Application built on top of the new Joomla Framework and is currently nearing it's first stable release.

The project now supports all three of these initiatives, as does Google Summer of Code. On our ideas list you will find projects related to the CMS, the Issue Tracker and the Framework.
