Google Summer of Code

Jenkins GSoC

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual, international, program which encourages college-aged students to participate with open source projects during the summer break between classes.

Students accepted into the program receive a stipend, paid by Google, to work well-defined projects to improve or enhance the Jenkins project. In exchange, numerous Jenkins community members volunteer as "mentors" for students to help integrate them into the open source community and succeed in completing their summer projects.

GSoC 2018

Jenkins project participates in Google Summer of Code 2018.


In 2018 we have 4 projects accepted:


Current state: Accepted projects are announced, Community bonding


Office hours

Although we use mailing lists as the main communication channel, we also define regular timeslots aka "office hours". During these timeslots Jenkins GSoC admins and mentors will be also available in Google Hangouts (link) and in the #jenkins IRC channel.


In addition to these meetings, each GSoC project will have its own regular meeting slots. They will be announced soon.

Note that the number of participants in the Hangouts channel is limited. If you cannot join, use IRC as a fallback.

Mentors and org admins

The mentors team is being formed now. See GSoC 2018 Project ideas for the list of potential mentors.
