This wiki page will be the central point for information about the Google Summer of Code 2011 for the OCaml community.

The structure of this page is freely inspired by the one from Debian.



The Google Summer of Code is a program where Google pays students stipends to work over the summer on free software projects. Each student works with one or more mentors from the OCaml community to complete a software project.

The Google Summer of Code has started again this year. If we are selected as a mentoring organization, 2011 will be the first participation of the OCaml community in the program and we want to show how vivid the OCaml community is. Participating in GSoC could improve the community as a whole by giving us more visibility as well as improved programs in OCaml.
