Hi all,

Google has just announced which students got accepted for this year's GSoC.
For Scipy these are:
- Nikolay Mayorov, "Improve nonlinear least squares minimization
functionality in SciPy"
  mentors: Chuck & Evgeni
- Abraham Escalante, "SciPy: scipy.stats improvements"
  mentor: Ralf (Evgeni is backup mentor)

Furthermore, this proposal was accepted for Scikit-image:
- Aman Singh, "Scikit-Image: rewriting scipy.ndimage to cython"
  mentors: Jaime, Ralf & the scikit-image devs

Congratulations to all of you!

We had a lot of interest this year, which is great to see. GSoC
applications are competitive, and unfortunately there are students who
didn't make it. To those students I would say: please stay involved, and
you're very welcome to apply again next year!

Today is also the start of the "community bonding period", where the
students aren't yet expected to start working on their project but do get
time to further figure out how things work, interact with the community and
ensure that they can hit the ground running on day 1 of the coding period:

It looks like it'll be an interesting and productive summer!


P.S. all proposals are linked on
for who's interested in the details.

P.P.S. some students have asked to get some feedback about why they
were/weren't accepted, in order to learn from it for a next time. Until
today we weren't allowed to say much, but now that Google has announced the
results I'd be happy to give some feedback - please contact me in private
if you want.
