Apply to Google Summer of Code – Kotlin Projects Available

Kotlin is taking part in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) for the first time!

GSoC is a global online program focused on bringing new contributors into open-source software development. This is an excellent opportunity to work on a 12-week programming project with the Kotlin Foundation under the guidance of mentors from Google, JetBrains, and Gradle, while gaining experience on a real-world project in the open-source community (with a chance to earn a stipend as well!).

Here are the proposed projects:

  • Kotlin Multiplatform protobufs
  • Kotlin Compiler error messages
  • Kotlin Multiplatform libraries
  • Groovy to Kotlin Gradle DSL converter
  • Eclipse Gradle KTS editing
  • Improve support for parameter forwarding in the Kotlin plugin for IntelliJ IDEA
  • Enhance the kotlinx-benchmark library API and user experience
  • Parallel stacks for Kotlin Coroutines in the debugger

See the full list of projects

Submit a proposal from March 20 to April 4 to be considered for one of these projects.
