PostgreSQL Project @ GSoC 2021

Wow! The PostgreSQL Project got all 7 proposals accepted into Google Summer of Code 2021!

This year Google changed the participation terms a bit, and cut the time for the students in half. This is supposed to help students who can’t work full-time from home, especially in light of the global pandemic situation. It also means smaller projects, which are easier to handle even for students new to the project.

The PostgreSQL project got a great number of initial applications (29), and we talked with many of the students about refining their proposals. 27 out of the 29 applications were finally submitted by the students. Some are duplicates, some are clearly just copied from somewhere, but many propose good ideas.

After talking with available mentors, and “recruiting” a few more, we settled on 7 final applications, and submitted them to Google.

As usual many of the proposals are not directly developing code for core PostgreSQL, but work on tools and applications from the PostgreSQL ecosystem. Expect some great output over the following months.
