Google Summer of Code 2011 banner

We are thrilled to announce that Google will be sponsoring 20 Drupal projects for Summer of Code 2011. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Google, who are investing over $110,000 in the Drupal project.

As always, we had many more projects that we would have liked to accept than we were able to. The mentoring team deliberated fiercely over the past two weeks, and arrived at the final acceptance list.

Many of the projects this year were from the idea list we collected at DrupalCon Chicago. Drupal will benefit from a new exposed translation activity, hierarchical permissions for Drupal 8 core, javaScript testing framework, version control activity logging, Module and Theme Browser in Drupal Core and Drupal Commerce discounts setup. There are also projects focused on improvements to the infrastructure such as including git infrastructure compatible with Drupal’s auth mechanism.

Some of Drupal’s major contributed modules will also gain, including extending the current “Materialized Views” API, help Aegir move to a 2.0 release, improving rules 2 etc.

If you would like to keep up to date on Summer of Code happenings, would like to volunteer to help test students’ projects, and/or would like to help students as they find their way in our community, please join the SoC 2011 working group and help out in whatever ways you can.

Here’s to another great summer! 🙂
