Sample GSoC Proposal Applications

Following are two real applications from Google Summer of Code 2014 which we thought are good enough to put up as examples. Having said that, none of them are perfect, so please treat them as inspirational material, and not as templates to copy from:

  1. WYSIWYG inline entity for Drupal 8 by Chandan Singh (cs_shadow)

  2. Port Securesite module to Drupal 8 by Shivanshu Agrawal (shivanshuag)

Google Summer of Code 2015 Presentations

Google released their Google Summer of Code 2015 presentation:

Overall web page:
https://developers.google.com/open-source/soc/resources/presentations

PDF version of the slides:
https://developers.google.com/open-source/soc/resources/downloads/GSoC_2...

I know one of the things I had talked about was putting together a talk for DrupalCamps and meetups that mentors could give about Drupal Summer of Code to get more involvement from the community.

Any thoughts on this one? I don't think Texas is having a DrupalCamp for a while.
