This summer, the GNOME project has had the great pleasure of having a total of 39 interns working with us. This included 29 Google Summer of Code (GSoC) interns as well as 10 participants in the GNOME Outreach Program for Women (GOPW).
The internships officially ended yesterday, and we’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank everyone who participated in them. We have seen some fantastic work done over the summer, including awesome new features as well as documentation and artwork. It has been a joy to work alongside such enthusiastic and talented individuals. You can find out more about our interns from this summer, as well as from last winter’s GOPW internships, in the 2012 GNOME Outreach Program Yearbook.
We hope that all our interns have enjoyed participating in the GNOME project, and that they have learned from their experiences. They have all truly become members of the GNOME community, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
This summer has been one of the most successful ever for GNOME’s outreach efforts. The project continues to invest in our outreach programs, which are an important part of our mission to spread software freedom.
Once again: congratulations to all.
