DrupalCon Austin 2014 Meetup?

Hi everyone,

I'm the main Google Summer of Code mentor for Vivek Pandya's iOS app for Drupal 8. I'm excited that native mobile application development for Drupal 8 has started before Drupal 8 is released, and that we're going to have a great open source example application.

Are any mentors or students attending DrupalCon Austin? It would be great to have a BoF (I think there usually is one at most DrupalCons).

Hello GSOC! I'm porting the IMCE module to Drupal 8.

Hi, my name is Alexia Mandeville, and I'm from Florida in the US. I currently attend the University of Central Florida and I'm in my senior year of Game Design, with a specialization in game programming.

I have worked with Joomla! and Wordpress, but I have never worked with Drupal up until now. Since being accepted with my mentor, I have been learning PHP and Git. I use PHP at my job, along with Git, so I'm becoming familiar with it.

I expect this to be a fun project, and should be helpful to the community since the IMCE module is widely used by people needing to upload photos.

GSoC 2014: Port XMLSitemap module to Drupal 8

Hello,

My name is Andrei - Marius Dincu and I am a Romanian student who loves Drupal. I study Computer Science at Politehnica University of Bucharest and I heard about Drupal about one year ago.

During the GSoC 2014 coding period I will try to port XMLSitemap module to Drupal 8. XMLSitemap module is one of the most used Drupal modules and I think it is a requirement to make it compatible with Drupal 8.

GSoC: Port Diff module to Drupal 8

Hi,

I am Lucian Hangea from Romania and I am a Computer Science undergraduate. My project for Google Summer of Code 2014 is 'Port Diff module to Drupal 8'.
Diff module: https://drupal.org/project/diff
I think this module doesn't need a lot of introduction since it is quite popular and its functionality is pretty straightforward: it provides the ability to make comparisons between entities and make the differences visually noticeable (more details here : https://groups.drupal.org/node/407793#project24).
