Welcome Interns

Hi all,

GNOME accepted 24 Google Summer of Code interns and one Outreachy
intern! Additionally, one student submitted the same proposal with
GNOME and with the Mono Project to work on Banshee, and was accepted
by the Mono Project. All the interns made a contribution to the
project they were applying to work on and connected with their mentors
during the application process. We are thrilled to have these talented
and dedicated contributors have a chance to spend the whole summer
working on GNOME! Thanks to Google and the GNOME Foundation for making
these internships possible!

Thank you to all the mentors who helped the applicants along the way
and will guide the participants this summer! We are especially glad to
have five mentors who have previously participated in GSoC with GNOME
as students - Sebastian Dröge, Izidor Matušov, Tobias Mueller, Lasse
Schuirmann, and Carlos Soriano! Everyone, please help out mentors from
your project by also helping the participants when possible.

Please feel free to arrange to meet with interns from your town for
beer, juice, and/or hacking! (Interns, please feel free to reply with
an update if you are in a different city this summer.)

Below is the list of all the interns’, their projects and their
mentors. You can learn more about the Google Summer of Code projects
at https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreach/SummerOfCode/2015/Projects. The
interns have already started blogging about their work on Planet GNOME
and will continue throughout the summer.

Thanks to everyone and welcome to the interns!
Lasse, on behalf of GSoC and Outreachy admins
