In 2018 Freifunk applied again as umbrella organization for Google Summer of Code. That’s the third year in a row and our 8th Summer of Code in total. Finally we got 14 slots for student projects.
As in the years before we act as umbrella organisation. Our partner organisations for this year are:
GSoC 2018 Projects
You can find our organisation’s profile and more information on our projects at the GSoC 2018 organisation’s page. This is just a list of our projects. More information will be added later when the coding period starts.

We’re looking forward for all these projects. Following the timeline we have the Community Bonding Period now. All students will be introduced to their organisation and their specific project. The projects will start latest at May 14. That’s when the coding period starts. There are several evaluations and the last Coding Period will end on August 6. After submitting the final evalulations by mentors and students the final results will be announced on August 22.
Stay tuned, all of the students will write about their project at this place. There will also be talks on events like the Wireless Meshup, Chaos Communcation Congress and other related events.
