PostgreSQL and Google Summer of Code

The PostgreSQL Project is participating in the Google Summer of Code 2018 program! This program funds students to contribute to an open source project over their summer break.

2018 Mentors

PostgreSQL follows an open community development model, so student projects are likely to be reviewed and commented on by any and all members of the PostgreSQL community. This also means that we may be able to find mentors for additional projects by reaching out to this community. If you are interested in working on a project not explicitly mentioned above, you may want to contact one of the Summer of Code liaisons below about writing a proposal.
