digitalmars.D - [gsoc] Thanks to all your great GSoC proposals!

To all students who submitted a proposal for this year's GSoC.

Thanks a lot for your great work!

We received a total of 25 proposals and will look thoroughly 
through all of them over the next days.
Please stay tuned!

PS: It doesn't hurt to stick around and get more involved with 
the D community in the meantime.
If you need inspirations for a mini project to brush up your D 
skills or dive more into the D community, I can recommend the 
following:

1) Subscribe to your favorite D GitHub repositories and learn 
from the work of experienced D coders (and feedback/review from 
others)

A good start is: https://github.com/dlang/dmd, 
https://github.com/dlang/druntime and 
https://github.com/dlang/phobos

But there are more out there ;-)

What is a better way to learn D than from the experts who work on 
its compiler or standard library?

This can be a bit daunting at first (especially if you're new to 
D), but if you stick to it for a week or two, you'll slowly start 
becoming an expert too.

2) Fix your first D bug:

A good start is probably this bootcamp Bugzilla list:

https://issues.dlang.org/buglist.cgi?component=phobos&keywords=bootcamp%2C%20preapproved&keywords_type=anywords&list_id=225005&product=D&query_format=advanced&resolution=---

The wiki article provides a few more ideas:

https://wiki.dlang.org/Get_involved

3) Ask the D community

Maybe the  community also has a few ideas or "mini projects" to 
get students more involved with the D community while waiting?

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but not a single student submitted a project proposal for DUB :/

I am aware that waiting sucks, but unfortunately we aren't allowed to disclose the results before Google does on May 6th. I can only state that we're really excited about this year's projects and students. We had a really hard time with the selection. Stay tuned for May 6th!
