Drupal is officially accepted into Google Summer of Code 2017 and is currently accepting student proposals. Students are encouraged to request proposal reviews on IRC in #drupal-google at Freenode.
Calling all mentors! Even if you don't have an idea or elite coder skills, you can still help. Drupal prefers to accept a small amount of projects with as many mentors per project as possible. If you're interested participating, contact me via d.o or find us on IRC. We're more than happy to team you up with potential students who will continue pushing Drupal 8 to the next level.Read more

There is no problem submitting as many times as needed as long as you meet deadline. Don't forget to continue contributing to issue queues!Read more
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:

Google Summer of Code 2014 is over and we are planning to write a summary of the entire Summer of Code experience. We want to all the students/mentors to write a one-line summary of their experience/takeaways from the program. Eventually we can post collect and post all the user stories together (something like: http://google-opensource.blogspot.in/2014/01/google-summer-of-code-veter...). So, please comment below in one line describing your experience.
This post, when complete will also be posted on Google's open source blog.Read more
