GSoC 2021 completed

The Google Summer of Code 2021 (GSoC) for the PostgreSQL Project is wrapped up. The timeline this year was shortened to half, compared to previous years. That’s good, because smaller projects can be worked on, and students have a chance to cope with a changing environment at home and university. On the other hand, the shorter time doesn’t allow diving into more complex projects. Nevertheless, with the help of all mentors, six students successfully concluded their projects.

PostgreSQL Project @ GSoC 2021

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

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.
