MariaDB in Google Summer of Code 2016

And for the fourth year in a row, MariaDB Foundation participates in the Google Summer of Code! The MariaDB Organization in GSoC is an umbrella organization for all projects that belongs to the MariaDB ecosystem, be it MariaDB Server, MariaDB Connectors, or MariaDB MaxScale. The complete list of our suggested project ideas is in MariaDB Jira. This year we were granted 10 student slots (as compared to 8 last year, 5 in 2014, and 3 in 2013). And it was good, as applicants this year were exceptionally strong. Our students have chosen these projects:

For the Master High Availability Manager for MySQL:

Many projects have two mentors to ensure that the student always gets a quick answer to his questions and someone is always available to help even if one of the mentors is, for example, on vacations.

Let’s wish all our students a successful and productive summer!
